    An evaluation usually occurs at the prompting of a peer, family member ....

    Hello everybody!

    Adult ADHDAdults with ADHD have typically had the disorder since childhood, but it may not be diagnosed until later in life. An evaluation usually occurs at the prompting of a peer, family member, or co-worker who has observed problems at work or in relationships.

    Does the bolded sentence mean that "Adult ADHD is usually detected at the suggestion of a peer, family member, or co-worker who has observed problems at work or in relationships"?

    Thank you.

    The evaluation could be positive or negative- the suggestion to test comes from the peer, etc, the result doesn't.

    I don't quite understand your reply. Is my reasoning regarding the sentence in question right?
