ADHD Resource Guides
These resource guides are designed to assist busy primary care practitioners (PCCs) in accessing practical, evidence-based tools to help them successfully screen for and treat ADHD in adults and children/adolescents.
Adult ADHD Resource Guide
The adult resource guide includes an algorithm to aid in the initial assessment and corresponding treatment approach (of adult ADHD), screening tools, a medication guide, and billing and coding guidance. In addition, the resource guide highlights multimodal interventions for adult ADHD based on available evidence, and gives providers suggestions on the screening, treatment, and monitoring for/of comorbid adult ADHD and substance abuse and/or substance use disorder.
Child/Adolescent ADHD Resource Guide
The child/adolescent resource guide includes an algorithm to aid in the initial assessment and corresponding treatment approach (of child/adolescent ADHD), rating scales, a psychopharmacology guide, and billing and coding guidance. In addition, the resource guide highlights multimodal interventions for child/adolescent ADHD based on available best-evidence, gives clinicians example materials for communication with schools, and provides guidance related to the transitioning of patients from the pediatric to the adult setting.
