    Description:
    ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders in children. The prevalence of ADHD in West Virginia is much higher than the national average. There has been shown to be a shortage of mental health professionals in the state and an overall need for clinician education on evidence-informed evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD.

Standard of care disclaimer:
This publication is not intended to establish a standard of care applicable to practitioners who treated patients diagnosed with ADHD. “Standard of care” is a legal term, not a medical term, which refers to the degree of care a reasonable practitioner would exercise under the same or similar circumstances. The standard of care is a continuum and does not imply optimal care. Practitioner discretion and clinical judgment are paramount and this publication is only intended to aid practitioners’ judgment, not to serve as a substitute for said judgment.
