When to Fire Your ADHD Child's Doctor

If you ever wonder whether your child with attention deficit disorder (ADHD) is receiving the right treatment, you are not alone.

Many practitioners and clinics don’t take the time to do a proper diagnostic work-up or to develop a proper treatment plan. By “proper,” we don’t just mean using the right medical tools and techniques. We mean establishing a personal connection with you and your child.

You need to be understood and listened to as you go through the arduous process of ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Too many mental-health professionals these days ignore the person in question while trying to nail down a plan for the patient. He or she is left bewildered.
