Here's a 5 minute adult ADHD screening test by Harvard, NYU & the World Health Organization on my website

http://addcoach4u.com/adultaddtest.html

Despite media stigma of adhd, & stigma by undiagnosed and untreated adders in denial and projecting that stigma & shame they feel onto the condition, research shows 90% of adults with ADHD are undiagnosed and untreated.

That test won't diagnose ADHD, but it screens you in or out, if you have a certain score then you want to see a doctor/psychiatrist or psychologist who knows adhd and many don't, for a full diagnosis.

If you do screen positive for adhd, start your search for a medical professional who knows adhd at your closest adhd support group, here's how to find one

good luck

It has been my experience very few children and adults are really and truly adhd. That most of the people use adhd as an excuse for not doing things or thier behavior. Yes, there are some people out there that are adhd. I have a friend that I firmly believe is adult adhd but has learned how to control it without meds. How she learned to control it, was because her parents and grandparents expected her to take responsiblity for her actions and put boundaries on her. They did not have adhd when we were little.

I was diagnosed in second grade ADHD . I took meds for it for 12 years. At the end I was in 30 mg adderall a day. These meds are amphetamines. They cause your brain to release its endorphins at double even triple it's natural rate. Making you feel good wich in turn makes you do good. Makes you concentrate on whatever task is in front of you. Just because you feel so damn good. Now, when you brain is supercharged in this way for so long the neuro receptors that interact with these endorphins become spent and shriveled causing the need for more amphetamines to achieve the same effect. I quit adderall after I graduated high school. I haven't felt "the happy feeling" since. Yes I can be content with my self. But as far as that good feeling you get in your chest when things are going your way, I don't feel that. I'm 27 now. I wish I could still feel happy. Not sayin I'm not happy just can't feel it. Some doctors call this brain damage. Some call it drug addict.
My point is that ADHD is a croc of shit.
It's something we humans made up. So don't put your kids on ridalin. If your child can't pay attention to their teacher it's prolly because their teacher is reeeeeally boring. If an adult can't pay attention it doesn't mean their broke. I bet that adult is really good at multitasking but has trouble concentrating on one task. This is a normal person. We all seek what makes us feel good. Maybe that one task just suck ass.
