Check Your Child for ADHD

Check Your Child for ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most discussed neurological disorders in modern pediatrics. Estimates suggest that between 4 and 11% of school-aged children may suffer from this disorder. In addition, boys are more prone to ADHD than girls. This ADHD test is designed to diagnose symptoms in children under 12 years old, and is based on the ICD-10 criteria for hyperkinetic disorder and the DSM-5 criteria for ADHD.

Factors such as low birth weight, iron deficiency, head injuries, a child's exposure to tobacco, alcohol, and drugs during pregnancy, and heredity increase the risk of developing ADHD. Problems with hyperactivity and inattention can lead to sleep disturbances, anxiety, and difficulty with peer relationships.

It is important to realize that this ADHD test is just one diagnostic tool and is not a definitive means of establishing a diagnosis. A quality ADHD diagnosis should include medical, educational, and experiential evaluation.

This test includes various aspects and criteria to help determine the presence of ADHD symptoms in children. It covers the three main types of ADHD: inattention-dominant, hyperactivity-dominant, and combined types.Despite the potential inaccuracy of the diagnostic criteria, our test focuses on providing accurate and useful information. The peak age for diagnosis is between 8 and 10 years old. But the ADHD test can be applied to adolescents as well.

This test results should serve as a starting point for further discussion with a medical professional, especially if ADHD is suspected.
