Beyond Restless Energy: Understanding Your Child's ADHD Journey

Does your child seem to have boundless energy, struggle to focus in school, or constantly fidget?

Take Our Free, Child-Friendly ADHD Screening Tool

This evidence-based test will help you recognise the signs and symptoms of ADHD in children. Designed specifically for ages 6-17, this tool can help identify potential signs of ADHD and provide a starting point for further assessment. The test should be completed by parents.

The test takes less than 5 minutes to complete.

Here's what makes our test different:

  • Internationally recognized: The ADHD Test is recognised by the National Institutes of Health.
  • Validated Tool used by the NHS: Extensive research ensures the accuracy and reliability of its results.
  • Comprehensive: The test helps you understand if your child scores high for ADHD traits, looking at hyperactivity, impulsivity and other common ADHD symptoms.

However, it cannot replace a full assessment and it should not be used to self-diagnose or decide upon a treatment plan. It’s a great first step on your journey - giving you a better understanding of whether your child has severe ADHD traits and if an ADHD Assessment is worthwhile considering.

Unveiling More Than Just Symptoms: Understanding ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common condition that affects millions of children worldwide. While often perceived as a childhood issue, undiagnosed ADHD can persist into adulthood. The prevalence of ADHD in boys is 3.62% and 0.85% in girls in the UK. With proper diagnosis and support, children with ADHD can thrive in school, at home, and in all aspects of life.

A common misconception is that in order to be diagnosed with ADHD, you must be hyperactive. This is not true. ADHD presents in three main subtypes: inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive, and combined.


Signs and Symptoms of Childhood ADHD:
  • Inattention: Easily distracted, daydreams frequently, forgets instructions, loses belongings often.
  • Hyperactivity: Fidgets excessively, has trouble sitting still, talks nonstop, runs or climbs inappropriately.
  • Impulsivity: Blurts out answers, acts without thinking, difficulty taking turns, struggles with waiting.

It's important to note that these symptoms can also be caused by other factors which are teased out with a thorough mental state. A comprehensive evaluation by a qualified professional is necessary for an accurate ADHD diagnosis.

Children with ADHD might also have:

  • Learning Disorders: Difficulties with reading, writing, or maths can co-occur with ADHD [Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia].
  • Sleep Disorders: Trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or restless sleep can be linked to ADHD.
  • Anxiety Disorders: Children with ADHD may experience higher levels of anxiety and worry.
  • Mood Disorders: Depression or mood swings can sometimes accompany ADHD.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD): Some children with ADHD may also exhibit social and communication challenges characteristic of ASD.

These conditions are screened for in all our standard assessments ensuring a comprehensive assessment of a child’s mental state.

  • Formal ADHD Screening: You will complete standardised ADHD screening questionnaires, and we'll gather relevant school reports from your child's teachers.

A follow-up session with your child's psychiatrist allows for in-depth discussion of the results, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
