Conducting universal and individual screening for ADHD and comorbid disorders; accurately diagnosing ADHD using in-depth information from parents and the other professionals who work with the child; using today's most effective interventions for ADHD, with detailed discussion of both psychotropic medications and behavioral strategies in home and school settings; developing successful classroom-based strategies that combine the contributions of teachers, parents, peers, and the child himself; managing the functional impairments associated with ADHD, including difficulties with academic performance and relationships with peers and authority figures adopting a family-centered approach, so parents are true partners in the diagnosis and management of ADHD maintaining open, coordinated communication between the family, primary care provider, educators, mental health clinicians, and other professionals.
