Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Evidence of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is found in about 5% of children.  It is often the only behavioral health diagnosis for many children; when it exists with additional comorbid behavioral health diagnoses, it is optimal for a single, appropriately qualified provider to treat the child utilizing evidence based care.  However, if multiple providers are involved, close collaboration and communication among providers and with the child’s family/caregivers is essential.
