: i am a 22 yr old student..
: i have done average in school throughout my scholastic career but have had to use a lot of tools and help outside of class.
: in recent years i have noticed myself having a harder time focusing on conversation and lectures if they remotely prolonged..
: my memorization skills are good... and learning things concerning real life situations (outside of the class) usually come fairly well...
: i was thinking it may be possible i have ADD but just have a lot of intelegence to where it never prevented me from falling behind my peers..
: is there an at-home test i could take to see if this might be true?
: please respond be email if at all possible...
: thank you
Ask your doctor for a referral to a testing center/clinic that tests for ADD. They can test you for ADD and tell you if you have ADD or not. You would be wise to get tested so that if you do have any problems now or in the future you at least have a diagnosis to help you explain things.
