The checklist for ADHD is not intended to diagnose your child with ADHD.

If, after reading the ADHD checklist you recognize red flags in regards to your own child's behaviour, you should follow up with a visit to your doctor.

A proper ADHD assessment should be done by an experienced health care professional.

The assessment should not only include interviews with your child, you and teachers, but should also include a complete physical, to rule out any other medical condition which may be causing adverse behaviours.

Interpreting ADHD Checklist

When reviewing the checklist for ADHD keep in mind that ADHD behaviours are considered extreme, to the point where your child is not acting age appropriate, or socially acceptable.

ADHD behaviour has a negative affect on your child's home life and school life. ADHD behaviour also has been present in your ADHD child for years and cannot be explained away for situations in your child's life, such as a recent divorce.

The checklist for ADHD outlines the three basic ADHD behaviours present in the ADHD spectrum.

It is important to note that not every ADHD child exhibits all three behaviours. The subtypes of ADHD are...

  • ADHD Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Type
