These new guidelines are the result of work by experts in medicine, mental health, and education. They analyzed thousands of studies on ADHD and searched for common indicators of the disorder. Although the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-IV (DSM-IV), published by the American Psychiatric Association, lists ADHD among its disorders, the new guidelines from the AAP are designed to be user-friendly for primary care providers (physicians who do not specialize in mental disorders).
1. How did you review the materials? (Did you spend 5 minutes browsing it or 2 hours trying it?) -------I only spent a short while reviewing the material. I was focused mainly on the task at hand, creating a summary of the web page. 2. The quality of content. (Do the materials accurately present concepts and models that are educationally significant?) ----------This sight has very quality content. It uses specific references and links to other refereed sites, such as American academy of pediatrics, one (possibly a physician) had any further inquries about the diagnosing of ADHD. 3. The potential effectiveness for enhancing teaching and learning. (If used appropriately, will students learning and faculty's teaching be enhanced?)----------- I feel this is a terrific site to incorporate into a course plan focusing on ADHD. The content is organize very well, sometimes with brief summaries alluding to another page that is further developed. If any one has a question about ADHD I would recommend this web site.

It took me about 2 hours to get through this page, there was a lot of information and since my nephew has a form of this disease I found it to be quite interesting. I feel that this site helped towards educating me more to know what we would be going through with my nephew. This site could enhance a lot of peoples education, mostly too if they have someone in their family with this disorder. I found this site to be a lot better than most sites for finding information.

This site offers excellent information. There are links highlighted in the text that will take the reader to additional information for a more indepth look at the features of ADHD. Other than the embeded links there is little, if any interactivity. As an instructor, this may be assigned to a class for outside reading and discussion so that time in the classroom could be utilized in a more efficient manner.
