Özet

Introduction Functional impairment in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can occur in many areas such as in family, social activities, and problems related to school and may also persist during adulthood. The Weiss Functional Impairment Rating Scale-Parent Form (WFIRS-P) is designed to measure the functional impairment related to ADHD symptoms. The aim of this study was to determine the level of functional impairment that distinguishes the patients with ADHD who were diagnosed through semi-structured interviews from those without ADHD.
