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.

Technical Remarks:

First time users will have NO problem using this page.

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

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.
