Test For ADHD, ADHD Assessment Checklist

When a doctor determines if someone has ADHD or not, they have a simple test for ADHD. This test consist of a couple things.

1. ADHD assessment Checklist
This checklist is filled out by the patient or their parent. It asks questions based on the normal behavior of the person. You can view a copy of this for free by viewing the ADHD assessment Checklist.

2. Observation
Depending on the age, the doctor will observe the person as the sit there and speak with him/her. He/She will observe if this person is fidgety, if they lose their train of thought, and how well are they involved in the conversation.

If it is a child, the doctor may also do some other observations. The doctor may have the child do a puzzle, ask the child to set up their blocks like the doctors, and these kinds of things.
