Abstract

There were significant variations in ratings of ADHD and behavioural symptoms as a function of gender and age. It is crucial, during an evaluation of a child, to compare his or her scores to gender- and age-stratified normative data. Standardized normative ADHD-RS data from school children is now available and can be implemented in a national quality database within child and adolescent mental health services. The questionnaire can support the diagnostic classification, measure symptom-load and evaluate outcome of treatment of ADHD.
