How Is ADHD Diagnosed?• The process of diagnosing ADHD requires several steps and involves gathering a lot of information from multiple sources. You, your child, your childs school, and other caregivers should be involved in assessing your childs behavior.• A physician can conduct a medical history to help put a childs behavior in context. They will ask what symptoms a child is showing, how long the symptoms have occurred, and how the behavior affects a child and his/her family.
• The signs of possible attention deficit disorder may first be noticed long before the child begins school. Their lack of attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity may be seen when these lose interest in playing a game or watching a TV show, or if the child runs around and seems completely out of control.
