Assessing Adults for ADHD: A Systematic, Evidence-Based Protocol

Benjamin J. Lovett, PhD, and Jason M. Nelson, PhD

ADHD is a childhood disorder. However, recent research suggests that some individuals have challenges that persist well into adulthood. Some adults may have had ADHD during childhood but were not diagnosed at that time. The need to diagnosis ADHD in adults exists. This article presents a model for the assessment of ADHD in adults, based on the five criteria in the DSM and using documents and other pre-existing childhood information to make the diagnosis during adulthood.
