Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Screening Quiz - Sydney Treatment
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neuro-developmental disorder and affects one in twenty-five Australians. It is characterised by persistent patterns of inattentive, impulsive, and sometimes hyperactive behaviour, and is frequently accompanied by emotional regulation challenges. These behaviours develop from underlying and often inherited, neurological differences. Those with ADHD are less able to inhibit and regulate attention, behaviour and emotions; to reliably recall information in the moment; to plan and problem solve; to self-monitor or self-regulate. ADHD can cause significant functional disability at home school, and in all areas of life. Early intervention can prevent unfavourable outcomes.
Total Health Care provides evidence-based assessment and treatment, to assist those with ADHD to embrace their strengths and interests, learn to manage their challenges and “be happy and healthy”.
Below is a short questionnaire that simply measures the level of a patient’s symptoms of ADHD. Feel free to take the quiz and determine your results below. Please note, this questionnaire is not a diagnosis, nor does it constitute as medical advice. This is just a guideline.
Answer all questions on a scale of 1 to 4. 1 being ‘not often’ and 4 being ‘very often’.
Add all of the numbers together that you selected. For instance if you selected all 3’s, you would get a score of 3 x 9 questions = 27.
Please see the below matrix to determine your quiz results.
If you scored 9 – 18: You have a moderate to low degree of ADHD symptoms.
If you scored 19 – 27: You portray moderate to high symptoms of ADHD, and you should seek an appointment with your local GP and obtain a referral with one of our specialists if appropriate for you to seek a diagnosis.
If you scored 28 – 36: You have scored a high level of ADHD symptoms in this quiz. It is recommended that you consult your local GP for a referral to a specialist to determine a diagnosis.
