Three family paediatricians carried out a survey of ADHD among their patients. Six simple screening questions and a checklist were used. 19 children, out of 794 referred to their office, fulfilled the ADHD criteria. Out of these children, 16 were reassessed by an child neurologist. Diagnosis was confirmed in 12 cases (10 males, 2 females). The overall prevalence of confirmed cases was 1,7% (CI 95%: 0,85-2,35).
