“Have you documented your use of the ADHD DSM-IV criteria when making a diagnosis of Adult ADHD?”

The Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS v1.1) and scoring system were developed in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Workgroup on Adult ADHD.

As a healthcare professional, you can use the ASRS v1.1 as a tool to help screen for adult ADHD patients. Insights gained through this screening may suggest the need for a more in-depth clinician interview. The questions in the ASRS v1.1 are consistent with DSM-IV criteria and address the manifestations of ADHD symptoms in adults. Content of the questionnaire also reflects the importance that DSM-IV places on symptoms, impairments, and history for a correct diagnosis.

The screener takes less than 5 minutes to complete and can provide supplemental information that is critical to the diagnostic process.

“Because of its ease of use, short time to administer, high sensitivity, and moderate specificity, the ASRS-V1.1 is an effective adult ADHD screening to guide further evaluations for ADHD.” (J Am Board Fam Med 2012;25:847–853.)
