Yes, definitely. Although ADHD is considered a “child onset” disorder, meaning it must begin in childhood, in can be diagnosed in adults by reconstructing the suspected patient’s childhood history by reviewing old report cards and other school-related records. However, no formal diagnostic criteria exist for adults with ADHD.
