About Dr Alison (Sally) Poulton
Alison (Sally) Poulton MBBChir, MD (Cantab), FRACP is a paediatrician and Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre Nepean, with more than 25 years of experience in treating ADHD. Her research has included studying the effects of stimulant medication on growth and physical maturation. She is interested in the patterns of attention and concentration experienced by people of all ages with ADHD, and is excited by the possibility that these experiential descriptions might be more specific for ADHD than the symptom based diagnostic criteria. Her models of ADHD, as described in her book: ‘ADHD Made Simple’ and on her educational website (www.poultonadhd.com.au) describe her way of explaining ADHD and its relationship with oppositional defiant disorder. These models can explain some of the difficulties that students with ADHD can experience with academic tasks and with their behaviour.
