Clinicians and service users involved in ADHD diagnosis.
What have we found
Assessment of ADHD in children and young adults typically consists of interviews, subjective parent and teacher rating scales and observations, relying on clinicians’ judgement for diagnosis.
Children and young people may wait many months to receive a diagnosis. The assessment process may be protracted and costly, with delays caused by missing information and/or contradictory informant reports.
Adding an objective test (QbTest) can reduce time to confirming an ADHD diagnosis and result in cost savings.
