Grounded in more than 20 years of research, this valid, reliable, easy-to-administer instrument is widely used by mental health, educational, and medical practitioners in screening, diagnosis, and treatment evaluation. Parent questionnaires on home behaviors (English and Spanish) and teacher questionnaires on classroom behaviors are keyed to DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Each scale takes just 5 minutes to complete and comes in both a child (5-10) and adolescent (11-17) version, with developmentally appropriate symptom descriptions. Complete instructions are provided for scoring and interpretation, including separate scoring profiles for symptoms and impairments in boys and girls.
