The lists, checklists, and forms are organized into eight major sections that address the following topics: (1) understanding, diagnosing, and treating ADHD (26 lists); (2) preventing and managing behavior problems using strategies, supports and psycho-social intervention (18 lists); (3) instructional strategies, accommodations, and supports (9 lists); (4) study skills, learning strategies, organization, and homework tips (9 lists); (5) academic difficulties in reading, writing, and math (14 lists); (6) collaborative care and practices to support students with ADHD (5 lists); (7) special education, related services, or other school supports and accommodations for students with ADHD (5 lists); and (8) understanding, supporting, and improving outcomes for individuals with ADHD (11 lists). Numerous cross references provide access to related lists for both individual list items and entire lists. An appendix provides 27 additional charts, forms, and visual prompts.
