Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common disorders of childhood (Barkley, 1990; DuPaul, 1992; DuPaul, Barkley, & McMurray, 1991) affecting approximately five percent of the school-aged population or at least one child in every classroom (Barkley, 1990; DuPaul & Stoner, 1994). The high numbers of children with this disorder make ADHD an important topic for research and practice, especially for school psychologists. The purpose of this paper is to summarize current best practices in the assessment and treatment of ADHD as well as to examine the implications for the role of the school psychologist.
