Background:Childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent neurodevelopmental disease. It is often identified in younger years and continues throughout maturity for many people. Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may have difficulties focusing, may behave without considering the potential consequences of their actions, or may be extremely energetic. Methods:The cross sectional study was conducted in 4 psychiatric clinics for a period of one month. The three junior doctors from each of the clinicians were chosen for the survey. The rationale for choosing this group is that they were able to give a clear idea about the etiology of the ADHD than the other health workers. The cross sectional study has been done to understand the number of ADHD cases arriving the clinic within a month. Thus, a total of 12 participants has been recruited in this study. The respondents were approached via mail and also over the phone. Before, conducting the cross- sectional study it is necessary to seek permission from the supervisor of the hospitals informing him about the purpose of the study. Results:The study included 1058 participants. Of them, 62.5% use single method for diagnosing ADHD (n= 661). CAB-ADHD was used among 556 participants (52.6%). There were 41% believed that a combination between medication and psychotherapies is more effective (434%). ADHD was diagnosed using monitoring and observation among 583 (55.1%). ADHD test in adults was performed using interviewing the patient (n= 649, 61.3%). Child ADHD quiz was the most used (n= 600, 56.7%). Adults with ADHD spontaneously visits the clinic without compulsion by themselves (n= 524, 49.5%) or by a family member (n= 534, 50.5%). The most frequent barrier to hinder ADHD patients from seeking treatment was stigma (n= 435, 41.1%). Conclusion:ADHD prevalence, cause, and diagnosis are inconsistent. Therefore, doctors must discuss ADHD. This will assist identify pharmacological and nonpharmacological therapies. The most common test used to diagnose ADHD in adults was an interview. The most common kid questionnaire was ADHD. Stigma was the biggest obstacle to ADHD treatment.
