School Based Assessment Of Attention-Deficit/HyperactivityDisorder

  • James Bylund


Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is a neurobehavioral syndrome marked by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).  The essential features of the disorder include a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity that is more frequent than typically observed in individuals at a comparable development level.  In addition, diagnostic criteria require that some symptoms are evident prior to age 7, the symptoms are present in two or more settings, and the symptoms clearly interfere with social, academic, or occupational functioning.  There are three subtypes of ADHDincluding Predominantly Inattentive Type (AD/HD-I), Predominantly Hyperactive – Impulsive Type (AD/HD-HI), and Combined Type (AD/HD-C).
