Attention Deficit Hyperactivity (AD/HD)

Is there a single test that can be used to determine if a child has AD/HD?

NO! An evaluation for AD/HD should be comprehensive. Diagnostically, there needs to be significant behavioral difficulties evidenced in multiple environments for a sustained period of time (i.e., at least six months). Therefore, there must be a comprehensive investigation of a child's background in addition to individual testing and feedback from the student, parent (s), and teacher (s).
