How Do I Find Out If I Have ADHD?

The question we get asked the most?

That’s simple: ‘How do I find out if I have ADHD?’  (If you’re asking this question right now, do yourself a favor and bookmark this blog page so that you can refer back to it again, and again!)

Maybe you suspect, or have assumed, that you are slow, weird, weak-willed, lazy, or any number of things along those lines. 

Maybe parents, siblings, teachers or others have suggested something like this.   With the pace of life these days, I suppose everyone wonders if they have ADHD.

Do I Have ADHD?

Here’s the deal: The modern world may well be making us more distractible, overwhelmed, and restless, but Adult Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or ADD) is an honest-to-goodness neuro-developmental disorder.   

What Is ADD? | Lets Get Real

And by “real” we mean, do NOT let your self-assessment be derailed by the skeptics who are less than supportive at best, or downright abusive at worst. 

We’ve seen so many people with ADHD start to make real progress, then get hit with a flippant remark like, “C’mon, there’s nothing wrong with you. Just try harder!” 

Then they stop treatment and waste more years in needless suffering.

Here’s a much healthier path: Take our Do I Have ADHD? quiz

While it’s not a replacement for a doctor’s diagnosis, it can give you a quick read on whether or not you are showing the signs of having ADHD.

You can also watch our Unofficial Test video.  It’s a lot of fun AND it actually covers a whole slew of ways ADHD shows up in your life. 

And, yes, both of these tools have had expert review for accuracy. 

If it’s like Ding! Ding! Ding!, and alarm bells are ringing, watch a few of the short, free videos on our website. 

The Unofficial ADHD Test for Adults is a great place to start to tap into that whole “knowledge is power” thing! If the bells keep ringing, keep watching.

They won’t all be a match.  ADHD varies widely, everyone of us has a unique combo of challenges and strengths.

If these assessments leave you thinking, “OMG! You’re describing my life!” check out our documentary ADD & Loving It?!  It’s an eye-opener, and there’s many reasons it’s won awards, and changed so many lives.

Educate Yourself First – Be Your Own Advocate!

When people say, Doesn’t everyone have ADHD nowadays?”  I nod and say, yes.  And doesn’t everybody have height?  weight?   intelligence?  The question is, how much?  

Then I tell them to read Understanding What ADHD Is and Isn’t.

At some point impulsivity, restlessness, problems with attention, sensitivity to emotion, and problems with memory, time-management, procrastination, follow-through, planning, and organizing can demolish someone’s life.

Download the ASRS Screener and ASRS Self Report Scale, created by The World Health Organization. 

The beauty of doing this is that, as you continue to learn about ADHD, figure out your challenges, and try new strategies, or start a treatment plan, you can re-do the ADHD tests every few weeks to track your progress!

Be warned.  Finding out if you have ADHD can be a huge turning point in your life.  It was for me.

Life is not going to suddenly be rainbows and sunshine, but if you keep moving forward, it gets better and better.  (But never as quickly as we’d like! Ha!)
