Must it have been diagnosed by age eight? I was diagnosed at thirty, but the diagnosis was based on behaviors/problems/symptoms that were there since very early childhood. I was told by my psychologist that the diganosis may be missed in childhood (especially in women with the non-attentive type like me who didn't cause classroom disruptions), but that the true test is that the symptoms were PRESENT early.
