The author believes that this article by K. L. O'Connell is a valuable practical guide to the assessment and treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The paper reviews O'Connell's working description of some aspects of the nursing process. This paper states that the nurse's primary role emerges at the assessment stage and that the second important nursing role, especially for school nurses, is in the treatment of ADHD.

From the Paper:

"Behavioral interventions, controlled environments and individual and family counseling also are described as complementary aspects of treatment. In the sample case O'Connell describes a subject whose symptoms were first identified by a pediatric nurse and whose school performance and behavior were vastly improved by two years of Ritalin therapy and environment management (e.g., seating selection and isolated settings for academic testing)."
