A much more accurate statement would be that EEG scans "could" be useful tool in making a diagnosis of ADHD and hopefully in time they will.

The EEG diagnostic tools show a good bit of promise but they are not there yet. I have seen some good reports on the Qeeg.

Right now, diagnosing ADHD is a clinical judgement issue. Keep in mind that according to Barkley, none of the DSM disorders have a valid test for diagnosing, they are all based on clinical judgement.

I have seen none of the DSM diagnosis to be otherwise but I have not looked at all of them (there are around 400 of them.) I pretty much suspect Barkley has and will take his word on this.


Good points to bring up. You are not the only one to have these questions.
