Abstract

Multistage identification, an epidemiological screening method of diagnostic assessment, was used to identify attention‐deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in 1,490 elementary‐school students. Children diagnosed with ADHD exhibited more impairment on adjustment measures and were more likely to have coexisting disruptive behavior disorders than were children diagnosed as subclinical non‐ADHD. 1992 American Orthopsychiatric Association
