ADHD Test Additional Considerations:

  1. Some hyperactive-impulsive and inattentive symptoms that caused impairment were present before age 7 years.
  2. Some impairment from the symptoms is present in two or more settings (e.g., at school or work and at home.)
  3. There must be clear evidence of clinically significant impairment in social, academic or occupational functioning.
  4. The symptoms do not occur exclusively during the course of a Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Schizophrenic or other Psychotic Disorder and are not better accounted for by another mental disorder (e.g., Mood Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Dissociate Disorder or a Personality Disorder.)
