ADHD Questionnaire

Take our questionnaire to see if your child may have ADHD. Please note, this test is not diagnostic and can only give an indication of likelihood.


  • Never or rarely (never) = 0
  • Sometimes (mild) = 1
  • Often (moderate) = 2
  • Very often (severe) = 3

Assign a number to each question. At the end of the questionnaire count up how many you have of each number. If your answers are predominantly 2s or 3s, your child could have ADHD. Your child’s ADHD can only be confirmed by a trained health professional, usually a doctor.
