When ADHD is suspected in a child, the child is
often evaluated using an instrument called the Connors Rating Scale. This
instrument uses observer ratings and self-report ratings to help assess
attention deficit disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents and evaluate
problem behavior. Teachers and parents may fill out the observer rating, while
the child or teen fills out the self-report. From these findings, evaluations
and recommendations are determined.
