Synopsis: An overview of current ADHD research that is relevant to mental health treatment within a system of care will be reviewed. Treatment implications based upon several key issues including the NIMH/MTA study on ADHD, deficits in executive functions, and effective use of behavioral interventions will be discussed. Related issues that impact behavior and academic performance will also be identified, for example, sleep disturbances, an impaired sense of time, and driving risks. A summary of outcome data will also be presented plus a brief description of the new CHADD Educator's Manual on ADHD that is being given to every public school in the country.
