    As someone with ADHD, I find this form outrageous and ridiculous. It is formulated in a way that is unclear and confusing. The sub questions, at times, do not resemble the original question. On top of that, it has no specification on how to respond, meaning under what state. With medications, without meds or in hyper-focus times. Its a pure panic attack for those who have to take it. Perhaps when making forms like this, the professionals can consult a few people who suffer from ADHD.

    At what point in the ratings is someone considered to have mild-severe ADHD? Are the scores all added up at the end and then if the total is within a certain point on the number scale the patient is considered to have some degree of ADHD?

      I was told it is simply a formality for the insurance companies. If you have add or adhd, the medication your doctor prescribes may be challenged or questioned by the ins company. A pre authorization then is needed from your doctor, who could then provide this form along with a verbal or written statement to approve your meds. I still find these forms to be ridiculous.
