There is no test available to diagnose ADD or ADHD. It is up to a psychiatrist or medical professional to diagnose the condition. Typically, information is gathered about the child or adult that may conclude whether or not the individual is suffering from ADD/ADHD, or another medical condition.

    • Symptoms are disruptive at home, work, school, in relationships, or other social aspects
    • More than one symptom must be present
    • Symptoms are not related to another medical condition or mental disorder
