It is difficult for parents to admit their child may have ADHD. But sometimes, all it takes is for someone credible to tell you "Now wait, is your child REALLY ADHD, or is it something else?" and walk you through what steps to take to discover the underlying cause of behavior issues. This is by no means a way to self-diagnose your child or a substitute for professional help, but it is a thoughtful guide for preparing parents to ask relevant questions of experts and to advocate for their child.
