Subject:Misdiagnosis of ADHD in Abused Children

I am looking for studies on the misdiagnosis of ADHD in abused children. Particularly, the diagnosis of ADHD when the true diagnosis should be PTSD. Also, the consequences of prescribing stimulants to children who have been misdiagnosed. Any ideas are greatly appreciated! Carrie Ellis Policy Research Intern TexProtects
