Diagnosing ADHD in children

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders in children and is usually first diagnosed in childhood. The most common signs of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD can affect all aspects of a child’s life, and lead to additional mental health challenges including anxiety and depression. Early diagnosis and treatment can help with family, social and academic life.

Diagnosing ADHD in Adults

ADHD often lasts into adulthood. To diagnose ADHD in adults and adolescents age 17 years or older, only 5 symptoms are needed instead of the 6 needed for younger children. Symptoms might look different at older ages. For example, in adults, hyperactivity may appear as extreme restlessness, forgetfulness or wearing others out with their activity.


JF&CS utilizes the QBTest, along with parent and teacher evaluations, and a medical evaluation to determine a diagnosis. QbTest is a computer-based test that combines a test of attention ability with a movement analysis based on an infrared measurement system. Test results are assembled into a report and compared with norm data from other people of the same sex and age. This way you can see how you or your child reacts when you concentrate on a task in comparison with people who do not have ADHD.
