Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, refers to any difficulty controlling a group of neurological functions responsible for planning, focusing on and executing tasks.
ADHD symptoms vary by subtype — hyperactive, inattentive or combined — and are often more challenging to diagnose in adults and girls. Adults with ADHD may have difficulty maintaining jobs and/or relationships, while children with ADHD often struggle in school.

The professionals at Stanford Couples Counseling will start by asking you to fill out and return questionnaires before an evaluation. You can expect the specialist conducting your assessment to do any or all of the following:
Talk to those close to you about your symptoms
Administer ADHD diagnosis tests, such as attention-span evaluations and symptom checklists
Discuss any problems your symptoms have caused in the past and how long they’ve been bothering you
