CARREIRO, Luiz Renato Rodrigues et al. Interdisciplinary protocol of neuropsychological, behavioral and clinical assessments for children and adolescents with inattention and hyperactivity complaints. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.3, pp. 155-171. ISSN 1516-3687.

This article presents a protocol developed for the investigation of signs of inattention and hyperactivity in children and adolescents, considering the behavioral, neuropsychological and clinical aspects. The first stage is a telephone triage. Further, the assessment consists of a face-to-face screening in which a behavioral inventory (BPM) is filled, and neuropsychological tests (IQ estimated by the Wisc-III and CPT-II Test) are performed. If there are indicators of inattention and hyperactivity the participant passes to the third stage. This stage is composed by complete neuropsychological instruments and inventories of behavioral assessment by multiple informants from Aseba approach. After this battery is finished, an evaluation with a pediatric neurologist occurs. When the feedbacks are given, the cases are addressed to diverse follow-ups­ according to the signals reported. Multidisciplinary and multiple informants' approaches bring greater clarity in identifying ADHD compatible signs, and also increase the specificity criteria to intervention actions indication.
