Nature and Context

There is no single test for ADHD and it requires several steps and involves gathering a lot of information from multiple sources. Testing is also age sensitive, too young or too old, and testing becomes even more complicated. Symptoms in adults are often connected to other problems, like anxiety and depression, and therefore go untreated. Improving the testing theories and expanding it to remote testing may mean more people can get the help they need.
