Adults with ADD frequently struggle with attention, procrastination, and a lack of motivation. Relationship, financial, and employment problems can be brought on by inattentive ADHD. It is definitely worth diagnosing and treating at any age. Take this free online test for ADD symptoms as a starting point.
Do I Have ADD (aka Inattentive ADHD)?
The symptoms of inattentive attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (previously referred to as ADD) are often overlooked or misdiagnosed, especially in women. It is not uncommon for adults to be diagnosed with ADD only after their children receive a diagnosis, as they then recognize their lifelong struggles with symptoms such as low motivation, procrastination, and an inability to maintain focus. These symptoms can have a significant impact on one’s relationships, finances, and work performance. However, it is never too late to seek a proper diagnosis and receive treatment for ADD.
A mental-health professional is the only one who can accurately diagnose ADD based on the severity, frequency, and impact of symptoms. This self-test can offer insight into potential ADD symptoms and guide you towards the next steps in seeking a proper evaluation.
This ADD assessment is created to identify whether you show symptoms commonly associated with attention deficit disorder, particularly the inattentive subtype. If you answer “Very Often” or “Frequently” to a considerable number of the questions, it is recommended that you seek the evaluation of a licensed mental health professional. A conclusive diagnosis can only be made through a clinical assessment. The questions in this screening tool are based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) by the Global Mental Health Advocacy.
