The Utility of the WISC-III Freedom from Distractibility in the Diagnosis of Youth with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in a Psychiatric Sample.
Gussin, Brian; Javorsky, James
Diagnostique, v21 n1 p29-42 Fall 1995
Comparison of 26 hospitalized psychiatric youth with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with 27 similar youth without ADHD on the "Freedom from Distractibility" factor of the Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children III found no significant intergroup differences, thus concluding that this factor is not a valid discriminant of psychiatric disorder or ADHD diagnosis.
