You suspect that your child or another family member is showing signs of attention deficit. Step One is to get a comprehensive evaluation by a professional who knows what ADHD is — and what it is not. This may be a pediatrician, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, or another medical or mental health professional who has received specialized training in how to recognize, assess, and treat ADHD and related problems.

Many professionals insist that an accurate ADHD diagnosis requires a full battery of neuropsychological testing, brain imaging, and computerized tests to measure attention. Dr. Thomas Brown, an esteemed ADHD expert with four decades’ experience, disagrees. Families can save money, he says, by knowing which tests are valuable in assessing symptoms of ADHD, and which aren’t.
