When I was diagnosed as an adult, my psych gave me an IQ test. That was cool, because I found out I wasn’t as dumb as I felt. There was one part of the test that I failed miserably. It tested attention and stamina. My scores were high on every other section, so it was obvious that I had ADHD. If you want to be absolutely sure that it’s ADHD, I’d recommend getting some scientific testing over just the surveys. The surveys are great, and offer a lot of insight, for sure! But If you’re nervous about being 100% certain, I’d go with the long test. 😉
