Background

Marianne M. Glanzman, MD, is board certified in Pediatrics with special qualifications in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities and is an attending physician in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She specializes in treating children with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and learning disabilities. She has a particular interest in using both medication and nutritional treatments for ADHD as well as providing parent education to help them better support their children with these disorders.

A desire to treat the “whole person” in each patient – not just a condition or a symptom – drives her work. “This field is moving toward a more integrative/whole person approach,” she says. “It’s exciting to see.”

That integrative approach is part of why she chose her specialty. “[In particular,] ADHD is challenging to have, and we can make a difference in the life of that child,” she says. “The combination of long-term involvement with the patient and family and interaction with other specialists and disciplines is gratifying. I want every family to leave CHOP knowing that we do our very best to help their child.”

To that end, Dr. Glanzman’s work goes beyond examinations and prescriptions. A critical part of her work includes helping parents learn more about how to best support their child, including home-based practices such as behavior management, self-esteem building, practicing organizational skills, and promoting sufficient sleep, exercise, and a brain-healthy diet. She is currently working on a project to provide the most up-to-date information about ADHD to teachers and school administrators, so that the "whole child" can be supported in the school environment as well.
