ADHD: Tests for Other Disorders
The child who is being evaluated for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may be evaluated for other disorders associated with the condition, such as learning or behavior disorders. The child may be asked questions (verbal tests) or may be given written tests to evaluate his or her intellectual abilities.
The most common tests for intellectual abilities in children are:
- WISC-III or, preferably, WISC-IV.
- Kaufman Assessment and Battery for Children (K-ABC).
