You are seeing Thomas Smith, a 9-year-old boy for the first time. He was brought in by his mother who is appalled by the family doctor’s referral to a psychiatrist who diagnosed Thomas with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). His mother asserts that “Tommy is just very bright, and those teachers just don’t know how to handle him!” How would you proceed with this family?
