The first and perhaps most critical recommendation we offer for the assessment of ADHD is that the information in this chapter has an expiry date, and only by keeping abreast of the science of ADHD can clinical practice in this area remain appropriate. ADHD is defined in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV-Text Revision; American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2000) as a disorder characterized by developmentally inappropriate and maladaptive levels of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.
Until further empirical evidence is available, clinicians must rely on clinical judgment, grounded in a solid knowledge of the empirical literature, in combining information from multiple sources and methods to arrive at a final diagnostic decision in childhood ADHD. Finally, in assessments intended to offer a diagnosis of ADHD, the clinician must have a working knowledge of other childhood disorders in order to make informed differential and comorbid diagnoses. The process of teasing apart whether inattentive or impulsive behaviors are best accounted for by ADHD or by problems such as fetal alcohol effects, learning disorders, and anxiety remains a challenge.
