There’s a DVD now available that will test for ADHD in deaf and hard-of-hearing adults. The test provides the original Attention Deficit Scales for Adults published in 1996 by Santo Triolo and Kevin Murphy in ASL. The Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder test was developed by researchers at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology. It’s estimated that as much as 38% of the deaf and hard-of-hearing population could have the disorder. The DVD will cost you $150 plus shipping. Contact the NTID for more information at (585) 475-6906.
