ADHD is a neurodevelopmental condition that can affect behaviour.1,2,3
The condition presents itself differently in each person but primarily impacts the part of the brain that allows us to organise, plan and
focus, as well as manage emotions.1,2,3

Could you be living with ADHD?

Please use the questions below to help you understand the symptoms of ADHD and how these may relate to your own experiences.3,4,5

Answer yes or no to each question.

The questions below are not designed to be used as a diagnostic tool. They should prompt you to consider whether you might be experiencing the key symptoms of ADHD – inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. If you relate to these questions, it is recommended you speak to your doctor about your experiences and the diagnostic criteria for ADHD.

Please note, a diagnosis of ADHD can only be made if:

Symptoms began before the age of 12 and have persisted into adulthood
Symptoms are not better explained by another condition
Symptoms are interfering with, or reducing, quality of life
