Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale, ASRS
Adult ADHD Symptom Checklist
[ normal ]
The eighteen questions in the ASRS v1.1 are consistent with DSM-IV-TR criteria and address the manifestations of ADHD symptoms in adults.
Six of the eighteen questions were found to be the most predictive of symptoms consistent with ADHD. These six questions are the basis for the ASRS v1.1 Screener and are also Part A of the Symptom Checklist. If the score is four or more then the patient has symptoms highly consistent with ADHD in adults and further investigation is warranted.
The frequency scores on Part B provide additional cues and can serve as further probes into the patient’s symptoms. No total score or diagnostic likelihood is utilized for the twelve questions. However, all eighteen questions are used to form two additional subscales: Inattention and Hyperactivity.
