ADHD can persist into adulthood and have a significant impact on a person's relationships, careers, and even safety. The ASRS (Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale) is a checklist of 18 questions about symptoms that are based on the diagnostic criteria of DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual -IV). The patient answers the questions and a positive score suggests the need for a thorough clinical evaluation with a healthcare professional.
This simple checklist takes only 5-minutes to complete and has been designed to provide immediate scoring without need for numerical calculations. The first six symptoms have been found to be particularly important and a short screening test has been built around those questions alone.
The ASRS was developed in conjunction with the World Health Organization and the Workgroup on Adult ADHD that included Lenard Adler, MD from the New York University Medical School and Ronald C. Kessler, PhD and Thomas Spencer, MD from the Harvard Medical School
These scales are easily used online and via mobile devices for assessment at the point of care. Score, share and record results.
