For this sample, the dsm-iv inattention total rating correlated 089 with the behavior assessment system for children (basc) attention problems t-score, and the dsm-iv hyperactivity-impulsivity total rating correlated 089 with the basc hyperactivity t-score, demonstrating validity of the measure in assessing the constructs of inattention and.

Some kids with adhd, just like those without it, score very high on iq tests, others score on the average side, and still others score below average sometimes, kids with high iqs aren’t diagnosed with adhd even when they exhibit symptoms since teachers may think they are bright but lazy, unmotivated, or just plain bored.
