The diagnosis and management of ADHD in children and youth has been particularly challenging for primary care clinicians. Mental health clinicians are not a solution for many families due to financial barriers, demographic barriers, and scarcity. This results in increased demand and expectation or the primary care providers to diagnose, treat and manage ADHD.
