Assessing ADHD in the Schools

Watch expert ADHD clinicians bring a multi-method approach to assessing ADHD in a school setting.
Meet Todd, a 3rd grade student who has been leaving his teacher at wit's end. He can’t sit still, distracts his peers, and has trouble completing assignments, leading his teacher to suspect that he might be suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. As his teacher begins the assessment process, leading authority on ADHD, Dr. Russell Barkley, offers some words of wisdom, and George DuPaul and Gary Stoner walk us through each step in their multi-method approach. You’ll watch interviews with Todd’s parents and the school psychologist, as well as meetings with a team of experts from the school, who collaborate to come to a diagnosis and treatment plan.
