      Primary care pediatricians provide a major component of the care for children and adolescents with ADHD. For the purpose of improving the care of these children, the American Academy of Pediatrics developed practice guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in the primary care setting for children ranging in age from 6 to 12 years.
