Probability of having ADD based on a screening test.

Patient

Q: Hi, I scored 96 on a ADD screening test (with 70 as the benchmark) and can't focus on things (reading, academic work, my own thoughts) is this indicative of ADD and worth my doctors time? Thanks.

Doctor

A:   You may be having ADD and need to see a doctor for potential therapy and treatment in form of medication.ADD needs to be identified in atleast 2 different settings. All the best.
