Abstract

ADHD remains controversial in both its diagnosis and its treatment. Currently, diagnosis and assessment of ADHD rely on the use of questionnaires, rating scales, evaluation based on DSM-IV criteria, and continuous performance tests, all of which have their own weaknesses. This paper reports on the development of the Test of Attention Impulsivity and Hyperactivity in Children (TAIH-C), a standardised, behaviour based assessment of attention impulsivity and hyperactivity in children with ADHD. We present individual and group data on children independently diagnosed with ADHD and nonADHD classroom peers, to validate the implementation of the TAIH-C as a valuable tool in both diagnosing ADHD and designing precise.
