Default Re: How do doctors test if you have add?

According to my Dad the Shrink, there are alot of different ways to incorrectly diagnose any mental problem, but only one really correct way to do it: With a comprehensive psychodiagnostic evaluation by a competent psychologist with alot of good training and experience. A teacher/school/pediatrician/parent cannot accurately diagnose these issues, (although they can certainly identify some symptoms that may or may not be caused by them, there are alot of things that may look like ADHD but aren't) in much the same way that being a surgeon does not mean one is fully competent at diagnosing and fixing the family car.
