The Diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Young Children.
Tynan, W. Douglas; Nearing, Jeannette
Infants and Young Children, v6 n4 p13-20 Apr 1994
This review of research on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) indicates that standard diagnostic criteria are overly inclusive when applied to young children, with only half of impulsive toddlers fitting the criteria for ADHD at later ages. Accurate diagnosis depends on an evaluation of behaviors, child temperament, parent-child interactions, and a comprehensive history. (Author/JDD)
