Detailed Description:

Filling out the study questionnaire by ADHD diagnosed and suspected children (have a positive DBDRS (Disruptive Behavior Disorders Rating Scale Questionnaire) result) who were referred to the pediatric endocrine clinic of our hospital for short statue evaluation. The study questionnaire will be filled by child's guardian.
