Example text

So, in our hypothetical group of 18 adolescents, we could expect that roughly three to five will have a comorbid learning disability, based on Barkley’s conservative definition, but this would not mean that the remaining 13–15 students would be academically successful. Rather, students with ADHD are likely to lag behind in their classwork, even when LD is not diagnosed (Kent et al. 2011). As such, academic impairment would still be a common concern for most of our hypothetical group, even if it did not warrant a separate diagnosis or special services.

For ease, we use the DSM estimates in our example. , Lahey et al. 1994), so we are assuming the lowest estimated sex ratio here in our example. 4 Although the DSM allows for children with intellectual disabilities to be diagnosed with ADHD, the attention problems or overactivity must be deemed excessive given the child’s mental age. Some research suggests that a lower IQ threshold should be established to exclude behaviors attributable to severe forms of intellectual deficits (Barkley 2006), but the DSM-5 allows dual diagnosis in instances where inattention or hyperactivity-impulsivity is excessive.
