In order for appropriate clinical practices to be employed when working with children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and their families, it is critical to choose your own theory of what process or factors underlie this disorder. In this weeks readings, you have become familiar with several different potential explanations for ADHD. Most likely, as you explored these theories, one or more of them stood out to you as seeming to be more valid than others, from your own perspective. Perhaps you felt that one had stronger research support or was simply more logically related to symptom presentations. Perhaps you have prior experience with this population and had already formulated some ideas about causes, which your readings this week served to validate for you. The questions you will address in this weeks assignment are: 1) What are some theoretical explanations for ADHD? 2) Which do you believe and why?

- Summarize (briefly) the theories about ADHD that you studied this week.
- Describe your chosen theory in detail. Who are its main proponents? What research support exists? What is it about this theory that you find compelling? What are opponents arguments against this theory and why do you disagree with those critiques?
- Conclude your presentation by summarizing the main points of your presentation with an emphasis on the conclusions you obtained from your studies of the various theories.
