"Caring for Children with ADHD: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians, published by the Academy of American Paediatrics" provides a number of rating scales and tools for physicians, parents and teachers that may aid the diagnostic process.
The toolkit also provides support information for parents on how to deal with their child at home, help its treatment and monitor their child's development and long-term outcome. These tools tie in with a resource kit that physicians can supply to teachers to monitor classroom behaviour, gain a better insight in the disorder and help their pupil's treatment.
