This presentation will cover the history of ADHD, current criteria for diagnosis, known and fictitious causes, associated and co-existing medical, educational and mental health disorders and conditions that look like ADHD but are not. In the course of discussion we will chat about Executive Skills as a way of conceptualizing this common condition. We will consider the indications for initiating an ADHD evaluation, what it should involve, and who should do it. We will discuss the Multi-Model Treatment Plan when criteria are met.
