Recognizing the Inattentive Subtype of ADHD in Boys

This issue of NASET’s ADHD series was written by Kristin Wilcox, Ph.D. Initially, ADHD was defined based on observations of hyperactive behavior in boys. Unfortunately, the perception of a child with ADHD - boys who are hyperactive, impulsive, fidgeting, blurting out answers in the classroom, and constantly talking - has changed little over the past several decades. Results from large population-based studies suggest the inattentive subtype of ADHD may be the most prevalent type, however, it continues to be underdiagnosed. Children with the inattentive subtype of ADHD fly under the radar at school and at home with symptoms of inattention, forgetfulness, and disorganization which are difficult to identify correctly as ADHD and can often be confused with other behavioral problems. Teacher and parent education is key to learning how to work with our children’s ADHD brains and will aid in earlier diagnosis of the inattentive subtype.

This week's trivia question: Once parents have completed the referral to special education process and the school has obtained parent/guardian consent, a team of qualified school professionals (multidisciplinary team) must conduct an evaluation to determine a student’s eligibility for special education. The purpose of the evaluation is to identify strengths and weaknesses in a child’s academic performance and decide if the child has a disability that requires special education services. The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires that this evaluation must be completed within how many days of receiving consent?

If you know the answer to this week's trivia questions, email it to us at contactus@naset.org by March 28th, 2023. If you are correct, you will be acknowledged in next week's NASET's Week in Review
