It isn’t until more than halfway through the article that Mark’s observed actions are actually reported, revealing that the teacher’s comments, while somewhat on track with Mark’s observed behavior, was nevertheless inaccurate. Once Mark’s actual behavior is known, this information is followed up with information regarding Mark’s intellectual, motor and academic test scores are revealed. The conclusion of the diagnostic center is then given as a case of ADHD and the treatment plan is outlined. The case study calls up a lot of questions regarding how ADHD is diagnosed as well as providing a lot of information regarding the detailed method by which each case is scrutinized before diagnosis is made. By carefully describing Mark’s behaviors as they are observed and reported by those around him, the report suggests a factual perception. However, the case of the teacher who reports that Mark is often seen sleeping through class when this behavior is not noticed even once during a two week observation period illustrates strongly that these are opinions regarding his behavior rather than fact. The importance of the writer including this information brings out the importance of not making a diagnosis based strictly on reported behavior patterns. Although Mark’s behavior continues to resemble the characteristics of children suffering ADHD, there are several other factors that may or may not be a part of his observed behavior that could help indicate another condition altogether.
