Example text

Given that no adults were studied in the field trial, whether the symptom thresholds are equally valid (sensitive) at detecting females as males with ADHD in adulthood is open to question. The general population study by Murphy and Barkley (1996a) suggested that symptoms in adults were as frequent in females as in males but that this was not true for retrospective recall of childhood symptoms, in which the more typical pattern of greater male frequency of symptoms was evident. B. Some hyperactive–impulsive or inattentive symptoms that caused impairment were present before age 7 years.

As with Wender’s criteria, the diagnosis of adult ADHD based on this approach is contingent upon the retrospective recall of the patient, which is then used to infer a diagnosis of ADHD in childhood. In our clinical and research practices, we have followed a similar approach to assess childhood and current functioning (Barkley, Murphy, & Bush, 2001, Murphy & Barkley, 1996a; Murphy, Barkley, & Bush, 2001). But we developed our own structured interviews and rating scales for doing so (Barkley & Murphy, 1998, 2006) considering that none existed at the time specifically for the diagnosis of ADHD in adults and that the child-diagnostic structured interviews were not developed or intended for use with adults.

This would make it more difficult for a female to obtain the diagnosis than a male despite equal levels of symptom deviance (developmental inappropriateness) relative to others of the same sex. Given that no adults were studied in the field trial, whether the symptom thresholds are equally valid (sensitive) at detecting females as males with ADHD in adulthood is open to question. The general population study by Murphy and Barkley (1996a) suggested that symptoms in adults were as frequent in females as in males but that this was not true for retrospective recall of childhood symptoms, in which the more typical pattern of greater male frequency of symptoms was evident.
