Guidelines for the Identification, Diagnosis, and Treatment of People with ADHD

Recently ABC News Online reported on new guidelines for the identification, diagnosis and treatment of people with ADHD.

For the first time, patients and medical professionals have comprehensive, evidence-based guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in Australia.

“For a family who has concerns over one of their family members, it really provides them with an authoritative, best-practice document, so they can be confident with the treatments offered,” said Monash University Professor Mark Bellgrove, president of the Australian ADHD Professionals Association (AADPA).

“It will equip them to ask the right questions of the clinicians and others involved in the care of their family members.”

It’s estimated that as many as one million Australians have ADHD.
