Requires several symptoms for 6mo. before age 12
Inattention (6+) (5+ for adults)

Hyperactivity/Impulsivity (6+) (5+ for adults)

Need to specify if the Diagnosis is both, or a predominant symptom
Needs to be delineated from a number of similar presenting diagnoses.

Specific Learning Disorder
Difficulty Learning subject/skill (Math, spelling, reading, reading comprehension, etc.)

Intellectual Disability
Impairments to:
Executive function
Abstract thought
Working memory
Specific vs Global
Occurs in childhood

Missing Developmental Milestones

Generally requires neurological exam

Unspecified Communication Disorder
Whenever the signs point to Communication Disorder, but full criteria aren't met and the clinician choses not to specify why.
Or there is not enough information available, and cannot be tested due to extenuating circumstances
Developmental Coordination Disorder
Early developmental period

Developing and implementing motor skills does not match chronological age.

Slowness, clumsiness,

Interferes with daily life.

Not explainable by intellectual disability, or neurological, or muscular condition
Stereotypic Movement Disorder
Early Developmental onset

Repetitive, seemingly intentional and purposeless movement

Interferes with activities and social situations

Not due to substances or neurological conditions.

Not if it is better explained by a different cause of symptoms.

Note whether or not it results in self-injury

Note whether it's associated with a known medical condition

Tic Disorders
Onset Before 18 Years
Not explainable via effects of substance or medical condition
Tourette's Disorder
Both motor AND vocal tics

Persistent (Chronic) Motor or Vocal Tic Disorder

Either motor OR vocal tics not both

oscillating in intensity for a year or more
Provisional Tic Disorder
Either motor OR vocal tics not both

Less than a year since first symptoms

It has never met the criteria to be diagnosed as either of the other two

Other Specified Tic Disorder
Unspecified Tic Disorder
Other Specified Neurodevelopmental Disorder
Unspecified Neurodevelopmental Disorder
A circumstance where symptoms are consistent with Neurodevelopmental Disorders, but don't meet the full criteria for any of the other disorders.
Same as above, however this diagnosis is distinct because it requires either the clinicians choice to mention why it does not fit, or a lack of available information to make necessary distinctions.
Limited to situations where there is a lack of information, or the clinician chooses not to specify the reason it does not fit into other categories
When symptoms show tic disorder, but do not meet any of the full criteria.
Comes in Mild, Moderate, and Severe
Inattentive to detail, prone to careless mistakes
