Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is a common psychiatric disorder, with onset before age seven. The diagnosis is based on a careful history and standardized rating scales, and stimulant medications remain the drugs of choice. Children who do not respond to stimulants, or who have other significant psychiatric disorders, should be referred to appropriate mental health professionals.
