If you want to know how to test for ADHD for yourself or your child, you MUST watch this video.
We'll cover how to get an ADHD self assessment or an assessment for your child, what adhd screening tools people use, and who can diagnose ADHD.
We also cover what ADHD means, what ADHD stands for, and what ADHD looks like as well as common ADHD symptoms.
It's very important to understand ADHD who makes the diagnosis and why you should not take ADHD self tests.
For those of you who don’t know, ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which is actually a misleading name because:
- you don’t have to be hyperactive to have it
- and people with ADHD don’t have an attention deficit, it’s just that regulating their attention is difficult, which can either make it hard for them to focus on one thing or can make them hyperfocused on one thing
What does ADHD mean?
ADHD is a medical condition, more specifically a neurodevelopmental disorder.
It is NOT a myth or made-up excuse by parents of “naughty” kids. If you’ve ever had to deal with this, let me know what happened in the comments below!
A person with ADHD has visible differences in brain development and brain activity that affect their attention, emotional regulation, and self-control.
Watch the full video to understand more about what ADHD is, how to take an ADHD test, and how to get your child tested for ADHD.
