This online screening is not a diagnostic tool. While the results of this online screening may indicate the extent to which your child has signs of ADHD, only a trained medical professional, like a doctor or mental health professional, can help you determine the next best steps for you and your child. Sharing your answers to the questions in this screening with a confidant or medical professional can be a helpful way to initiate a dialogue about your mental health and make progress in finding the medical care and support that you need.

Are you a parent who’s wondering: “Does my child have ADHD?” If so, this ADHD quiz for children is a great first step in helping you answer that question.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental health conditions affecting millions of children in the United States, according to 2016 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most signs and symptoms typically present during childhood between the ages of 6 to 12 but can last through adulthood.

This neurodevelopmental condition can impact the way kids and teens read, learn, work, play, and interact with others. While impulsivity, inattention, and/or hyperactivity might seem like typical behavior for some kids, they could also be symptoms of ADHD in children if they last for longer than 6 months.

Depending on the severity of the condition, your child or teen may experience unique challenges at school or with peers.

This brief, time-saving questionnaire is designed for parents who thinks their child may benefit from an evaluation for ADHD.

A proper diagnosis and treatment plan can offer your child or teen valuable coping skills, behavioral therapy, and/or medication needed to manage their condition better.

This self-assessment tool features some of the most common symptoms of ADHD among children and teenagers. Your results can help you determine whether further evaluation may be necessary for your child.

This online screening is not a definitive tool. It is not intended to diagnose you or your child with ADHD.

If you think your child might have ADHD, consider scheduling an appointment with a qualified mental health professional for an in-depth evaluation.
