Are there any official online tests for ADHD from gov or pediatrics websites?

No.... But: There are no official online tests from the government or aap recognized websites for the diagnosis of adhd.

I did a test to see if I am  ADHD online. The test was positive. I suffer from anxiety and have alearning disability.

On-line tests = junk: Don't believe a test you took on line. You need to be evaluated by a licensed psychologist or physician for such a diagnosis. I also noticed that you are 48 years old. If you didn't have a history of ADHD as a child it is unlikely that you have one now. I hope that helps clear things up. :) ...Read more

How is ADHD diagnosed in children? How are kids diagnosed with adhd? Is there a test or screening that can tell me for sure if my child has it? .

How is ADHD diagnosed in children? How are kids diagnosed with adhd? Is there a test or screening that can tell me for sure if my child has it?

.

Exclusion first: Before you diagnose adhd you must exclude a long list of other problems. The screening test is here http://www.Adhdoractivechild.Com/adhd-test but excluding the other problems that can look like adhd is an entirely different story. What are your child's symptoms? ...Read more

Before I adopt a child, is there a way to test a 2 year old for ADHD or other brain problems with a cat scan, mri, or any other way?

Before I adopt a child, is there a way to test a 2 year old for ADHD or other brain problems with a cat scan, mri, or any other way?

Probably not: Age 2 is far too young to be able to test for many of the disorders of concern to you, and scans are not going to help. Infant psychologists can estimate overall intelligence and functioning at this age, but that may be affected by the child's circumstances before adoption. They can pick up current problems but are not apt to be great at predicting future ones such as adhd. ...Read more

Why are kids now a days diagnosed so often w/adhd&add then back in the 80's when I was growing up? N does this run in families a lot add/adhd?

Why are kids now a days diagnosed so often w/adhd&add then back in the 80's when I was growing up? N does this run in families a lot add/adhd?

Improved recognition: Indeed adhd does run in families. I think more are diagnosed because we have better tools to evaluate for adhd, and the treatment for it has been effective, there is more acceptance of the condition. It is not correct to try to link it to the increase in the number of vacines today. In the fifties we were given more than 3000 antigens in the vaccines whereas today they get only 300-400 antigens. ...Read more
