Screening Tool: Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (in Children)

Wondering whether or not your child (aged 5-18) may have ADHD? Try our free, online, anonymous screening questionnaire to see if your child might possibly have ADHD...


Compared to typical children the same age, would you say that your child OFTEN or VERY MUCH has troubles with the following:

1. Has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
2. Runs about or climbs excessively in situations when remaining seated is expected

The brief screening questionnaire used here is based on DSM-IV criteria and has been developed by Dr. Phillippe Robaey, Professor of Psychiatry, Head, ADHD and Disruptive Behaviour Clinic, at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
