Clinicians and service users involved in ADHD diagnosis.
What have we found
A number of objective measures are available for use in assisting the diagnosis and monitoring of ADHD in children.
There is uncertain evidence for value of using continuous performance tests (CPTs) to support clinical decision making and for monitoring medication for ADHD.
The addition of objective activity measures to CPTs, such as the QbTest, has strong support for differentiating those with and without ADHD, sensitive to the effects of medication.
