ADHD Quiz For Students

School can pose challenges for those with ADHD. We created a thorough quiz that evaluates ADHD symptoms in yourself or your child while in school.

This quiz is only informational and should not be used as an official diagnosis.

Do you or your child often:

Overlook details or make careless errors when completing schoolwork or other activities

Have trouble paying attention to tasks or play activities?

Not listening when spoken to directly?

Not follow through on instructions and fail to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties (e.g., lose focus, get side-tracked)?

Have trouble or get frustrated when organising tasks and activities?

Avoid or dislike tasks that demand mental effort over an extended period, such as schoolwork or homework?

Misplace essential items like school materials, pencils, books, keys, or your mobile phone?

Play with their phone to the detriment of other aspects of their life (not sleeping enough, not stopping during relaxation times)?

Fidget with or tap hands or feet, or squirm in the seat?

Feel restless, or the need to run around leading to leaving the seat when remaining seated is expected?

Unable to play or take part in leisure activities quietly?

Always need to be doing something?

Talk excessively and blurt out answers before questions have been completed?

Have trouble waiting their turn and interrupt others during conversations?

ADHD and ADD affect an estimated 5.3% of the population and often causes students to struggle at school. ADHD can affect students in a variety of ways, including making it difficult for them to concentrate and stay on task. It can also lead to lower grades, difficulty managing time and organisation skills, issues with social interactions and impulsive behaviour. ADHD can also cause frustration among teachers and other students when it is not managed correctly. With proper support from an ADHD tutor or coach, however, these challenges can be managed.

Our ADHD coaching is an evidence-based process that assists people with ADHD and ADD to develop the skills, insights and strategies needed to manage their symptoms and reach their goals. We work collaboratively with students on topics such as self-awareness, emotional regulation, time management, organisation and study skills. We also help them strengthen motivation and create positive behaviour support.

As specialised ADHD coaches focussing on students at school, college, or university, we support students through individualised help. We help students build self-awareness, emotional regulation, time management, organisation and study skills. The most valuable support is often aiding students in building self-confidence through providing a comfortable space to discuss issues in their academic and personal lives. Additionally, our coaches provide support in finding resources that can help manage their educational needs.

An ADHD coach would cost you anywhere between 80 pounds/hour to 150 pounds/hour

Students with ADHD often learn best through anecdotes, engaging stories, and trial and error. They often benefit from varied learning activities, including video tutorials, demonstrations, and first-hand experience. It is essential to give students regular instructions and reminders, break down tasks into smaller goals, and allow them to take breaks as needed.
