Determining whether or not your child is suffering from ADHD is a process that involves several steps. However, if your child is distractible, disorganized, impulsive, and struggling to focus in school, getting them assessed may be a good idea.
The symptoms of ADHD are similar to various other conditions (such as sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, and some learning disabilities). This is why there is no single test for its diagnosis. Professional advice is your best way forward if you are concerned that your child may have ADHD. Mental health professionals, such as psychologists and psychiatrists, or primary care providers, such as paediatricians, can make the diagnosis.
If you are concerned that your child may be suffering from ADHD but would like a better look into how likely it is that he/ she may receive a positive diagnosis, Maxi Mind Learning can help. We have developed a screening test that is designed to evaluate the behaviour of children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old.
Please note, this is not a clinical diagnosis and does not replace a full psycho-educational assessment, but it’s a fast way to discover if you should look into it further.
