Adult ADHD Self Report Scale-Version (ASRS-V1 .1)

What is the ASRS-V1.1?

The ASRSV1.1 is a self report questionnaire designed to assess symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults. It consists of 18 questions related to symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. Although there are 18 questions only the first 6 are counted for the screening tool. The remaining questions can provide your assessor with more information to discuss over during the assessment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


How are ASRS-v1.1 scores interpreted?

  • A score of 4-6 suggests a presence of ADHD

  • A score below 4 suggests an absence of ADHD 

  • The first 6 questions of the questionnaire can identify almost 70% of people with ADHD.

  • It is important to note that the ASRS-v1.1 is only a screening instrument to help with the assessment process and an accurate diagnosis of ADHD can only be made by a qualified specialist
