Complete the ADHD Symptom Checklist

When it comes to ADHD, people of different ages can show the same symptoms in different ways.

The following checklist can be used as a starting point to help you recognize ADHD symptoms, but is not meant to replace talking with a health care professional. Talking with your doctor can help you better understand the condition as well as ease some of your concerns.

Please keep in mind, an accurate diagnosis can be made only with a thorough clinical evaluation by a health care professional. You may want to find a quiet spot and take a few minutes to complete this checklist. Your responses can help provide a high-level description of some of the symptoms for a health care professional. Regardless of your responses, if you are concerned about the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in adults, be sure to talk with your doctor.



MOVE THE SLIDER TO SELECT THE ANSWER THAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR ACTIONS AND BEHAVIORS OVER THE PAST 6 MONTHS. BE SURE TO CONSIDER HOME, WORK, AND SOCIAL SETTINGS.

If you’re concerned about ADHD, please talk with your doctor.
