Although primary care physicians are inundated with demands to handle ADHD referrals, their supply of relevant resources, texts, and training programs has been thin. This book provides a no-frills, highly practical set of strategies carefully tailored to fit the realities of modern-day medical practice. Physicians will find clear algorithms to aid in making the full range of clinical decisions: "When should I refer out?" "What are the logistics of assessment?" "What about medication?" "How do I deal with schools?" The authors were so focused on practicality that they even included a computer disk containing word-processing files of all the relevant questionnaires, letters, and consent documents!
