    Would like some opinions on what to code for kids that have attention issues but are not diagnosed as ADD/ADHD?? No significant behavior issues. Thanks

    Thanks Linda but I remember reading somewhere that this dx is related to head trauma causing these symptoms. Does anyone else remember seeing that in coding newsletter? Just want to be sure. thanks

    There is nothing in the code book that states these are symptoms only related to trauma.
