ADHD SCHOOL OBSERVATION CODE (ADHD-SOC)
Experts recommend using direct observations of school behavior in evaluations of children with AD/HD. An observer uses the ADHD-SOC to assess the behavioral symptoms of AD/HD, oppositional defiant disorder, and conduct problems in structured (classroom), semistructured (lunchroom), and unstructured (playground) settings. Research shows that direct observations of child behaviors are important when making differential diagnoses, planning special education services, formulating treatment plans, and monitoring response to intervention.
