Synopsis: This study examined disparities in special education placement among 4,852 children diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in the Philadelphia mental health system. Thirty-eight percent had any special education placement, with learning disability placement most common. Black children were more likely to receive a disruptive disorder diagnosis and to receive intensive behavioral treatments and less likely to use stimulants. In adjusted analyses, black children were less likely than white children to have any special education placement. Among those in special education, black children were more likely to be placed in the emotional disturbance category.
