ADD/ADHD Self Assessment Form

http://webdoc.nyumc.org/nyumc/files/psych/attachments/psych_adhd_checklist.pdf

The best way to use this is to print the form, give one to a family member (that you trust), print one out for yourself, then when you are done, compare.

If you struggle with 4 or more of Part A symptoms look to part B for additional clues.  Bring both questionnaires to the doctor.  Then…read up on ADD/ADHD in adults, women, anything you can get your hands on.  Maybe read up BEFORE you go to the doctor.
