Has anyone tried to get their ADHD diagnosis? How reliable is it?

Thanks for sharing this resource. I know that there are many obstacles that prevent diagnosis and treatment for children and their families with ADHD. If this really is what it says it is, it may be helpful for families. I wonder if there are any reviews of families that have used this service?

Hello, Spookykk!

I want to try to carefully answer your question. I am a professional in the field (w/ ADHD and a child with ADHD).

You can use an internet tool to get a diagnosis. It can confirm your thoughts.

However, there is no tool on the internet that I am aware of that will be accepted by a physician or therapist in our field as a valid/reliable diagnostic tool. The primary method is either psychological or neuropsychological testing. The other methods are by diagnosis by a professional in the field.

I hope this helps. The ‘net is extremely helpful for resources, information and many related items, so this is definitely not a knock of the internet.

Many blessings to you and your family.

Hopefully someone who has used the service can add their thoughts. I looked into it a bit a few months ago. There are supposed to be real DRs patients interact with and in some states they can also manage prescriptions for ADHD meds. It looks to be a great option for those who can't afford traditional testing or have long wait times for appointments in their area.
