Welcome

Dear colleagues and conference attendees:

I welcome you all to all the joint Saudi ADHD Support Group and American Academy of Pediatrics symposium, Medical Home: an Innovative Approach to ADHD. This unique symposium marks the partnership between the ADHD Support Group in Saudi Arabia and the American Academy of Pediatric and it is testament to their effort towards improving the quality of life of children with ADHD in the Middle East through the provision of information, service and support. The American Academy of Pediatrics requires no introduction as the most important organization in the world promoting child health. The ADHD Support Group in Saudi Arabia was formed in 2004 with the aim of raising the standard of life for children with ADHD and their families by improving awareness and availability of services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We have already made great strides in areas of advocacy, public awareness and education.

This symposium is the first symposium in the Middle East addressing the needs of ADHD children. We have expert speakers from around the globe who will give us a wide variety of in-depth and stimulating discussions on different aspects of ADHD ranging from research through practical training. Physician will also have the opportunity to hear about the latest updates on ADHD and will benefit from comprehensive hands-on experience in applying and utilizing the ADHD toolkit for diagnosis and treatment, which was assembled and designed by multidisciplinary team of experts on ADHD under the guidance of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The Medical Home symposium will feature 4 tracks, including a symposium targeting parents and educators and other members of the community for 3 days, with comprehensive training for parents and educators during the 5 days of the symposium. For the first time in the Middle East we will have a coaching course for parents, educators, psychologists, school counselors and other people interested in coaching ADHD in the future.

We are hoping to hear from you and to thank you in person for making this joint symposium a successful event for the ADHD support group.

Dr Suad Al-Yamani
Organising Committee Chair

Medical Home

The American Academy of Pediatrics describes the medical home as a model

of delivering primary care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective care.

In March 2007, a consensus statement on medical home principles was developed and jointly endorsed by ACP, AAFP, AOA, and AAP. Understanding the unique needs of children and families, the Academy wishes to highlight certain critical pediatric medical home principles:

Family-centered partnership:

Trusting, collaborative, working partnership with families, respecting their diversity and recognizing that they are the constant in a child’s life

Community-based system: 

Family centered- coordinated network designed to promote the healthy development and well being of children and their families

Transitions:

Provision of high-quality, developmentally appropriate, health care services that continue uninterrupted as the individual moves along and within systems of services and from adolescence to adulthood

Value:

A high-performance health care system requires appropriate financing to support and sustain medical homes that promote system-wide quality care with optimal health outcomes, family satisfaction, and cost efficiency
