Looking for ADHD Awareness Resources in Arabic?

Last month I was contacted by a doctor in Australia looking for some patient education materials to help an Arabic-speaking family understand their child’s ADHD diagnosis and treatment. I put together this list of translated titles of some of the videos on our YouTube channel, and I thought I’d share them here in case anyone else would find these useful.

I’ve divided the list into two parts: Firstly, short videos (a couple of minutes each) on a variety of ADHD-related topics, followed by longer videos (an hour or more, mostly recorded webinars). These videos are all presented by consultants and professors of psychiatry, psychology, and special education.

Short videos:
