He also teaches in our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies (CAMS) program at the NYU Washington Square Campus. Dr. Verduin frequently delivers invited lectures for schools and other organizations on topics such as ADHD, managing disruptive behavior, effective parenting, and classroom-based behavior plans.
Dr. Verduin leads the Clinical Informatics initiative within the Center for Neurodevelopmental Disorders. This innovative project is changing the way clinical information is gathered and used in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. These efforts are already improving how treatment decisions are made, track changes in therapy, and evaluate a great variety of clinical services.
