What is the most effective diagnostic tool for ADHD in school-age children in the primary care setting?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in primary care is best accomplished with a combination of parent and teacher rating scales. Evidence indicates the SNAP, Vanderbilt, and Conners scales are all reasonably reliable and valid measures to assess ADHD in school-aged children. The Vanderbilt has not been shown to be valid for assessing treatment effects.
