This study found that using the onset of age 7 for this purpose reduced the classification accuracy of the remaining diagnostic criteria when compared to using older ages of onset (8, 9, or higher). It also reduced the interjudge reliability for the diagnosis significantly and failed to show any association with the types of impairments examined in that study. Unfortunately, DSM-IV had been published before these aspects of the field-trial analyses were completed and published, so the age-of-onset criterion was retained solely by default.

Therefore clinicians who adhere strictly to the requirement for multiple domains of impairment might fail to treat patients who would clearly benefit from treatment but who demonstrate impairment in only a single domain. These clinicians may fail to appreciate this form of adult niche-picking, which renders the patient’s symptoms less impairing by virtue of the individual associating with these less culturally mainstream and more avant garde, asocial, or frankly antisocial arenas of life. Because of an enormous increase in requests for special accommodations in employment and high-stakes academic testing under the Americans with Disabilities Act, controversy has arisen over the definition of impairment.
