But it is very important that you do not jump to conclusions or attempt to 'diagnose' your child by reading a checklist.

Consider the following ADD/ADHD checklist, if you have any questions about typical ADD ADHD behaviour, and if red flags are raised in relation to your child, then follow up with an appointment with your doctor.

The Best Way to Interpret ADD/ADHD Checklist

Remember, when considering the ADD/ADHD checklist, that behaviours listed are only considered to be ADD ADHD characteristics if they persist for more than six months.

Several of the following characteristics should be present, and not just one or two.
