The diagnosis and treatment of ADHD requires much work on the part of the parents. And the more the parents know about the disease the better they can manage it.
Doctors use toolkits to manage complex medical problems and there is an ADHD toolkit available online that physicians and parents can access.
Caring for Children with ADHD: A Resource Toolkit For Clinicians is available for down load at http://www.nichq.org/resources/adhd_toolkit.html.
The toolkit on the site at the time of this blog post is the first edition which was written in 2002. There is a second edition that is scheduled to be released in November of this year. It not clear whether it will be available online or will require purchase.
The first edition online now is still an outstanding resource for parents and clinicians. Please visit the above web address and look at all the resources available. Although written for doctors, parents will find it useful and easy to understand.
