dc.description.abstract K. was a girl I met while I was volunteering in an elementary school who really made me think about ADHD. How is it defined? How can it be diagnosed? What treatments might K. really need? Could a controversial treatment help her? Through my research, I came to find that the definition and diagnosis approach taken greatly determines treatment used; and that in order for children like K. to receive appropriate services, the community needs to agree on the standards to make that happen. I examine three models of defining ADHD, outline trends and guidelines in its diagnosis, and explore treatment options, including both standard and alternative interventions. Consensus, collaboration, and education are the keys; they make the best ADHD intervention.
