How is ADHD Diagnosed?

ADHD is behaviorally diagnosed, which means that the behavior of the individual is assessed in at least two settings (e.g., school/work and home). Difficulty completing projects, misplacing things, or difficulty sustaining attention are a few symptoms that may be reported.

There are three subtypes:

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Inattentive Type ; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Hyperactive Type ; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Combined Type. The symptom assessment determines which subtype is the most appropriate diagnosis.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Hyperactive Symptoms:

Often fidgets, often has difficulty remaining seated for long periods of time, restlessness, difficulty engaging in leisure activities quietly, is often perceived as "on the go," or talks excessively.
