ADHD Symptoms Test for Kids and Teens

While this test is not diagnostic nor is it prescriptive, if you are concerned your child or teen may display ADHD symptoms, take this test to see if your child/teen is at risk. The only accurate way to diagnose ADHD is through a mental-health professional, ideally following a thorough evaluation with a psychologist who has trained with children and adolescents.

This questionnaire is designed to determine whether your child demonstrates symptoms similar to those of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you answer yes to a significant number of these questions, contact us to see how we can help. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through a thorough clinical evaluation.

Based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association.
