The literature of ADHD, and the attempt at some etiological explanation, goes back to about 1900, about the same time that the neurologists Charcot and Bleuer were observing the behavior of syphillics suffering tetiary stage syphillis (paresis).

Avatar n tn While some physicians diagnosis on the basis of a quick interview, and some use symptom checklists, the most responsible way to determine if a child has ADHD is to refer him for psychological or neuropsychological assessment.
