Hyperactivity test - children (ADHD)

This test has been developed according to DSM-IV diagnostic criteria about ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It can be used by parents to recognize, in their children, the presence of some specific symptoms usually related to the ADHD. Our test does not possess a diagnostic value and should not be considered as valuable as a professional consult. It only helps finding out behaviours usually associated with children's hyperactivity disorder.
