Online Adult ADHD Screening Test (Part A)

Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS-v1.1) Symptom Checklist (Part A)

The following questions are designed to stimulate dialogue between you and your physician and to help assess if you may be suffering from the symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

This Symptom Checklist is an instrument consisting of the first six questions of the eighteen DSM-IV-TR criteria. Six of the eighteen questions were found to be the most predictive of symptoms consistent with ADHD. These six questions are the basis for the ASRS v1.1 Screener and are also Part A of the Symptom Checklist. Part B of the Symptom Checklist contains the remaining twelve questions.
