Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Online Testing for ADD
I would like to be able to take a online test/questionaire that would allow me to guage whether or not I might have one of these. Do you have one or know of one that I could take?
ADHD, including the inattentive type, which is sometimes called ADD, is diagnosed by history, not by a test or questionnaire. It requires a trained clinician because one of the criteria is that the symptoms can't be better explained by a different disorder.
