Online Poll

Please answer the following questions about ADHD in African Americans.

1. One barrier to appropriate diagnosis of ADHD in African American adults is:

Underestimating the effect of environmental factors on behavior

Assuming ADHD symptoms are due to individual shortcomings

The high number of available, culturally competent specialists

2. Your African American patient, Ms M, recently had her son diagnosed with ADHD, and she recognizes a lot of his symptoms in herself, especially concentration and organizational problems. She admits she doesn’t want to be labeled, and she thinks it will upset her parents if she is diagnosed with ADHD too. What would be the best strategy to understand her problems and provide help?

Tell her that ADHD is common in adults so she should not worry about her parents’ reaction

Describe the therapy and medication options available that can help with her symptoms

Explain that many adults have her symptoms, and they may not be related to ADHD

Emphasize the importance of family support and education and discuss her feelings about her symptoms, her son’s diagnosis, and why her parents would be upset
