How are tests done and processed to diagnose ADD or ADHD because they only asked my 8 year old a few questions and said he needed to be on this medication?
Hello alday. Your question has been asked some years ago and I only just noticed it now. ADHD the diagnosis is that the child show, demonstrate 6 attention symptons or 6 implusivity, hyperactivity symptons and these can be seen before the age of seven. There are questionaires that are usually filled out by the childs teacher and the parent. I'll list a few of the symptons, and only a few abd they might be such as talking to much, being inpatient or inattentive, difficulty processing information, daydreaming, not being able to focus, trouble or difficulty doing homework. These apply to children in general but in case of ADHD, they are more prevelant and powerfull. Best of wishes to you and hopefully your child is doing well, and good health,pledge
