Abstract: The objective of this study is to improve the relevance of previous studies by discriminating ADHD and ODD/CD from others (normal variant and other externalizing behavior), and also investigating the relationship between prior psychological consultation with clinician diagnosis. Parents and teachers were asked to fill in CBCL and TRF as the predictors of clinician diagnosis. CGC parents form was used to obtain previous consultation history. The attention scale from CBCL and TRF were found to be effective in discriminating ADHD, while only delinquent scale from CBCL found significantly predict ODD/CD. Therefore, the relevant CBCL and TRF scales were found to be effective measures to discriminate ADHD and ODD/CD diagnosis respectively. Prior mental health consultation was not related to clinician diagnosis.
