Given the findings of this study, it would seem advisable
for clinicians assessing individuals with ADHD to inquire directly
about whether they are able to complete tests involving reading
comprehension within the time usually allowed. If the student
reports frequent inability to complete such tests, the student
should be referred for a full psychoeducational evaluation,
including the NDRT or a comparable measure, to establish whether
accommodations including extended time for tests and examination
are appropriate and should be provided.
