Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia recently released a study where they stated that children with autism are prone to being over diagnosed with ADHD due to deficient diagnostic tools. The study leader, Benjamin E. Yerys, PhD, believes it is a crucial finding since ADHD medications do not necessarily work as well on people who have been diagnosed with autism.
ADHD and autism are over-diagnosed.
The researchers involved in the study believe that the over diagnosis can be decreased if the manner in which questions used in ADHD and autism screenings are rephrased. Too many questions are of the yes or no variety. Therefore, screening questions that allow for more nuanced answers could lead to more accurate diagnoses.
