False! EFD is not recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), but the issues it causes have a real impact on children and adults. It can be diagnosed using standard evaluations including the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF), Connors 3, Barkley Deficits in Executive Functioning Scale (BDFS) for Adults, and the Comprehensive Executive Function Inventory (CEFI).
