ADD Testing Online: Online testing for ADD/ADHD (Attention
Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
ADD Testing Online: Attention deficit disorder (ADD) Attention deficit disorder (ADD), now called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is a condition in which a person has trouble paying attention and focusing on tasks. ADD begins in early childhood and usually continues into adulthood. Recent studies of the general population have found that approximately 7.5% of children meet the criteria for ADD, and about 4.5% of adults meet the criteria for adult ADD. ADD is always a disorder of attention, but ADD may be accompanied by hyperactivity (the relative inability to remain still); however hyperactivity is not always present, especially for girls and older boys, and it is vitally important to remember that the inattention component of ADD is the most devastating. ADD can cause a myriad of problems including difficulty at home, school and work. The consequences of ADD place one at a significant risk for academic and professional underachievement, tobacco smoking, substance abuse, stormy interpersonal relationships and divorce, and even legal difficulties. Although ADD is not entirely understood it is clear that ADD tends to run in families; so if your father or mother had ADD there is a great likelihood that you to suffer from at least some form of ADD. ADD is generally a lifelong condition, and even though many adults with ADD learn to manage their symptoms and become professionally successful, the cognitive difficulties of ADD never completely subside without ongoing treatment. Fortunately, there are numerous medications, some select therapies, and extra support at home, school, or work that have been scientifically proven to be very effective for ADD.
