ADHD Screening Tests

ADHD Screening Tests                                                  

These are meant to be a guideline not a diagnosis. A thorough diagnosis requires much more than meeting the criteria set forth in a certain set of symptoms. We urge you to follow up the result of any Symptom checklist or online ADD test by consulting your doctor or other experienced health professional.
