ADHD Diagnosis Using the ASRS V1.1 Screener and Checklist

Lenard A Adler, MD, ADHD in Adults

Diagnosing Adults with ADHD with Focus on ASRS V1.1 Screener and Symptom Checklist – 0.5 Credits

In this twenty-five minute course, Lenard Adler, MD, covers the broad steps for diagnosis of ADHD and the in-office use of two highly reliable patient self-report surveys: the ASRS V1.1 6-Question ADHD Screener, and the 18 Point ADHD Symptom Checklist. The Screener can be completed by the patient and serve as a prompt for a fuller ADHD diagnosis. The 18 Point Checklist can be used with the patient initially to record the presence of the 18 core symptoms of ADHD, and then progressively through treatment to gauge symptom remission with a multi-modal treatment approach.
