School teams perform assessments to aid in the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In this thesis, a post-hoc descriptive study looked at what diagnostic model school teams in 3 Iowa Area Education Agencies used in assessing children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Three categories were used to describe the assessment process for this study, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th Ed.) (DSM-IV), Russell Barkley's 1990 Model, and an Other category. The researcher reviewed 24 student files to determine what diagnostic category was used in the assessment process. Data obtained through this study showed that there was no significant use of the DSM-IV model or Barkley's 1990 model, but a significant use of the Other category.
