If you've got an iPhone or iPad you might like this......

I've just downloaded a great new ADHD self-assessment App for the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad from Dr Edward Hallowell, it's called ADHD Quiz

There's a short quiz for adults, plus a long quiz for both adults & children, plus lots of other useful information... it's only $1.99 or £1.49 so very reasonably priced too! Try it & let me know how you get on!

Here's the info from iTunes about it...

Adhd Do you think you or a loved one has ADHD? A coworker? A student in your class?

World renowned ADHD expert Dr. Edward M. Hallowell, child/adult psychiatrist, lecturer, past member of the Harvard Medical School faculty, and author of 18 books, brings you his easy to use application to help you determine if you or someone you love has ADHD. Dr. Hallowell helps you learn more about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with two self-assessment quizzes and helpful ADHD background, next steps, resources, and news.

Great for teachers and school counselors, too!

Adults and children living with untreated ADHD have trouble focusing, remembering things, and completing tasks once they begin. Often, they don’t realize there is anything they can do; they think it’s just the way they are and will always be.

If this sounds familiar; if your inability to concentrate is causing stress in your life; if your child has trouble completing tasks in school, score yourself with the two quizzes offered in this application. Only a qualified physician can diagnose you with ADHD, but the questions contained here may help you decide whether your issues are the result of normal life stress or a real medical condition.

Features:
* App based on the best selling book “Driven to Distraction," by Dr. Hallowell and Dr. John Ratey
* Self-assessment quizzes, two for adults and one for children
* A wealth of knowledge about ADHD: background information, next steps, and resources, all from ADHD expert Dr. Hallowell
* An ADHD news and information feed with regular updates from Dr. Hallowell
