Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most challenging chronic conditions for children, families, schools, and physicians. Because symptoms of ADHD can be mistaken for other health conditions and misdiagnosis can occur, accurate diagnosis and treatment require comprehensive evaluation. This article introduces a school-based framework--ADHD Identification and Management in Schools (AIMS)--developed by a multidisciplinary team composed of a pediatrician, school nurses, and school psychologists that sought to improve communication between school personnel and physicians, standardize practice, and improve the quality of care for children with ADHD. The framework provides school nurses with an evidence-based, systematic method for early identification and management of children with ADHD. (Contains 4 figures.)
