This quick ADHD screening quiz is used to help determine if you might benefit from seeking out professional help for attention deficit disorder as an adult. We also have a slightly longer ADD quiz, if you prefer (that provides more accurate results).
People with ADHD symptoms often have difficulty concentrating, staying on task, not being impulsive, and some may suffer from hyperactivity. This ADHD quiz takes less than a minute to complete and you’ll be provided with an instant score.
Instructions: Please answer the questions below, rating yourself on each of the criteria shown using the scale below each question. As you answer each question, choose the answer that best describes how you have felt and conducted yourself over the past 6 months.
