There are several recognizable symptoms of ADD in both children and adults. This short self-assessment for ADD can help you determine the degree in which you or a loved one show symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder.
The following symptoms of ADD or ADHD are from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fourth Edition) by the American Psychiatric Association.
The scale evaluates symptoms which are chronic and pervasive and have persisted for at least six months. This self-assessment is a preliminary guideline only and should not be used to diagnose or treat any condition, disorder or disease. Please contact us to schedule an ADD/ADHD diagnosis or consult a licensed psychological professional in your area.
