Ratings of Hyperactivity and Developmental Indices: Should Clinicians Correct for Developmental Level?
Pearson, Deborah A.; Aman, Michael G.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v24 n4 p395-411 Aug 1994
This study assessed the relationship between parent/teacher ratings of hyperactivity and developmental indices in psychiatric clinic children (ages 5-16). Findings suggest that chronological age should be considered when behavior ratings are used to assess cognitively delayed children for hyperactivity but do not support use of mental age in determining which norms should be applied.
