Determining whether your child has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a process with several steps. There is no single test that can definitively diagnose ADHD, and many other conditions—including anxiety disorders, depression and certain learning disabilities—create symptoms that closely mimic ADHD.
Doctors use criteria established by the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-IV, Text Revision to reach a diagnosis of ADHD. This set of standards ensures that all kids who may have ADHD are appropriately evaluated and treated.
Because ADHD is characterized by a group of symptoms, getting a final diagnosis often depends on combining and balancing results from several different types of evaluations—including physical, neurological and psychological assessments.
Here at Boston Children’s, you and your child will have access to all of the necessary specialists through our comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach. We are here to advise and support you at every step of the way.
