Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder
There are three different types of ADHD. About 40% of people have the inattentive ADHD subtype characterized by poor concentration, being easily distracted and making careless mistakes, especially when a task is boring or difficult. About 25% have the hyperactive and impulsive ADHD type, characterized by often interrupting people, having hard time sitting still and taking turns. And about 30% have the combined ADHD subtype, characterized by difficulties with both concentration and impulse control.
The screening quiz you are about to take is NOT designed to diagnose ADHD but to help you determine if you are at risk for ADHD and should ask for help. Only a healthcare professional, such as physician, psychiatrist, or psychologist can diagnose ADHD.
