QbCheck ADHD test ($200 out of pocket)
What is QbCheck?
QbCheck is a web-based, 20 minute long objective test for 6-60 year-olds that measures the three core symptoms of ADHD; hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. The test taker’s results are analysed and compared to the result of individuals of the same age and gender, with and without ADHD. The comparison makes it possible for QbCheck, based on objective data, to predict the likelihood of ADHD, and provide healthcare professionals with information that can aid in the evaluation and treatment of ADHD. QbCheck measures the test taker’s movements, ability to pay attention and impulse control during a 15-20 minute test.
How long does QbCheck take?
The test itself is about 15 minutes for children aged between 6-11 years and 20 minutes for individuals aged 12-60. A follow up appointment will be also arranged to discuss the results of the QbCheck
