Diagnosing and managing attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) typically relies on subjective measures. When assessing children and young people for ADHD, the clinician gathers information from parents and teachers and uses these various sources of information to inform their clinical judgement and make a diagnostic decision or decision on medication efficacy. This process can be lengthy and heavily reliant on subjective clinical and informant judgements, which can lead to a lack of consistency in diagnosing and managing ADHD. 1 Adding more objective, computerised tests to assess the core symptom domains of ADHD (attention, impulsivity and activity) is one approach that has received increasing clinical recognition.
