"These data highlight the importance of obtaining an accurate diagnosis of ADHD in children, adolescents and adults with ADHD. The diagnosis of ADHD needs to be established through careful clinical interview -- there are no shortcuts," said Dr. Lenard Adler, a professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine.
