ADHD is the most common neurodevelopmental condition of childhood; thus, evaluating for ADHD is likely to be an important component of many clinicians’ practices. The assessment of ADHD is complicated by the developmental nature of the disorder, nonspecific symptoms, and frequent comorbidities. This webinar will present considerations for thoroughly evaluating ADHD, including psychometric pros and cons of rating scales and performance-based tests of attention and executive functions, as well as the use of testing results to guide recommendations for interventions and accommodations. In addition, ethical and practical issues surrounding the assessment of ADHD during the COVID-19 era will be discussed, with a focus on remote/telehealth assessment.
