ADHD Assessments

What Is ADHD?

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that typically manifests during childhood. The symptoms of ADHD include inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity. Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors, or they may be excessively active.


There are three types of ADHD: predominantly inattentive type, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type, and combined type. Individuals with the predominantly inattentive type of ADHD may have difficulty paying attention or be easily distracted. Those with the predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type may be excessively active or have difficulty controlling impulsive behaviors. Those with the combined type of ADHD exhibit symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity.

ADHD Assessments


There are a variety of ways to assess ADHD. A comprehensive evaluation should include a clinical interview, behavioral observations, and review of academic and/or medical records. Psychometric testing may also be used to assess ADHD.


The most common instrument used to assess ADHD is the Conners’ Parent and Teacher Rating Scales. The Conners’ scales are norm-referenced and provide information on the frequency and severity of ADHD symptoms.


Other assessment tools include the Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Parent Rating Scale, the Behavior Assessment System for Children, and the Child Behavior Checklist. These instruments are all valid and reliable measures of ADHD symptoms.
