Computerized battery to evaluate and detect the risk index of ADHD

  • Evaluate the risk index for the presence of ADHD
  • For children 7 and older, teens, and adults
  • Lasts about 30-40 minutes

The Cognitive Assessment Battery for ADHD (CAB-ADHD) is a professional leading tool that uses clinical tests and validated tasks to quickly and accurately evaluate the presence of symptoms, traits, or dysfunctions within the cognitive processes affected by ADHD.

This innovative online ADHD test makes it possible to take a complete cognitive screening, understand the user's cognitive strengths and weaknesses, evaluate the risk index for ADHD, and see the subtype: Inattentive (ADD) or hyperactive-impulsive predominance (ADHD), with excellent reliability. This test is appropriate for kids 7 and older, teens, and adults. Any individual or professional can easily use this online neuropsychological assessment.

The results of the assessment will be available for download after completing the test, which usually lasts about 30-40 minutes.

Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD or ADD) requires a multidisciplinary assessment and exhaustive differential diagnosis in order to discard inappropriate symptomology that may be better explained by a different mood disorder, learning disorder, or other condition.

Clinical history and assessing different areas, especially neuropsychology, are still the most effective tools to detect and diagnose ADD or ADHD. We recommend using this ADHD test as a complementary tool and never as a replacement for a clinical consultation.

Digitalized protocol for the ADHD assessment (CAB-ADHD)

The complete cognitive assessment for the detection of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder consists of a questionnaire and a battery of neuropsychological tests. It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete.

Children and adults at risk for having ADHD will respond to the questionnaire, which will evaluate the clinical symptoms of ADHD relevant to each age group. After this questionnaire, a series of validated games and tasks will be presented on the screen to assess cognitive function.

Diagnostic Criteria Questionnaire

A series of simple questions to detect the main diagnostic criteria (DSM-5) and symptoms of ADHD will be presented. The questionnaire contains questions that were developed and adapted to each age range.

Neuropsychological factors and cognitive profile

Following the questionnaire, a battery of online tasks designed to evaluate the main neuropsychological factors associated with this disorder will appear, focusing especially on executive functions. It uses clinical scales and validated tasks appropriate for each user.

Complete results report

After completing the ADHD cognitive assessment, you will receive a detailed report, where you will see the user's risk index of having ADHD or ADD (low-moderate-high), and will show you the type (ADHD or ADHD), warning signs, cognitive profile, an analysis of the results, recommendations, and guidelines. These results offer valuable information and can help a professional identify the appropriate support strategies for each user.

Psychometric Results

The Cognitive Assessment Battery for ADHD or ADD (CAB-ADHD) uses patented algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) which makes it possible to analyze thousands of variables and notify the user of a risk of ADD or ADHD which very satisfactory psychometric results.

The cognitive profile in the neuropsychological report has received scores of high reliability, consistency, and stability. This test was validated with repeated tests and measurement processes. Transversal research designs were used, like the Cronbach Alpha coefficient, reaching scores of almost .9. The Test-Retest tests reached scores of almost 1, showing the high reliability and precision.

When should you use this ADHD test?

This cognitive assessment battery makes it possible to reliably detect the risk of ADD or ADHD in children 7 years and older and adults.

If you think that someone may have ADD or ADHD, we recommend using this assessment as early as possible in order to reduce development difficulties and integrate an appropriate intervention as quickly as possible.

This neuropsychological assessment battery also identifies the risk index in adults at risk for ADHD. Many adults have suffered from attention and concentration problems their whole lives, as well as hyperactivity, difficulty following routines or rules, or impulsiveness that they can't control. However, even with these life-long difficulties, their attention disorder has never been diagnosed. While adults with ADD or ADHD may have an average, or even above average, IQ, it's possible that they were labeled disruptive or poor students in school due to the extra difficulties that they faced.

Emotional area

ADD and ADHD are associated with certain delays and some academic, professional, and social difficulties. This disorder affects behavior and is characterized by moderate to severe distraction, short attention spans, restlessness, emotional instability, and impulsive behaviors.

ADHD Subtypes
Most representative symptoms
Inattention predominance
Difficulties when concentrating and paying attention to a stimulus.
Inability to listen to and follow a conversation
Inappropriate behaviors and difficulty adapting to a social environment
Often loses or misplaces things
"Low motivation" to start or complete tasks
Changes in mood and symptoms of anxiety and low self-esteem

Difficulties when concentrating and paying attention to a stimulus.

Children or adults with ADD often have significant attention problems, but don't display hyperactivity. In fact, they could even be characterized by how their slowness and hypoactivity. Attention problems are caused by a poor-functioning and under-developed prefrontal cortex in the brain, which impedes the ability to correctly process information and start the neural mechanisms necessary to: understand an action, start it, avoid distractions, and complete it properly. People with ADD are often distracted by activities or sounds, don't pay attention to details, and make careless mistakes when doing a boring or difficult project (either for school, work, or socially).

Inability to listen to and follow a conversation

Children and adults with ADD generally have trouble processing or concentrating on stimuli, which is why it may seem like they're not paying attention when being spoken to. This is because they have trouble concentration on what the other person is saying and can make it difficult to pay attention in school, at work, or even with family. People with ADD have trouble following directions and completing tasks or projects.

Inappropriate behaviors and difficulty adapting to a social environment

The deficiencies in attentional skills and cognitive processes that people with ADD present make it difficult to properly understand social interactions and follow the rules or norms that regulate these interactions. This difficulty to follow established norms may, on occasion, cause inappropriate responses and difficulty adapting to the environment (at home, school, socially, etc.), which may lead them to feel rejected, causing low self-esteem, irritability, inappropriate classroom behavior, and poor academic or professional performance.

Often loses or misplaces things

It is common for people with ADD to misplace tools or other things that they need for their daily tasks or activities (games, toys, school supplies, etc.). They are easily distracted and forgetful. They may not remember where they put their jacket, their wallet, and may forget about meetings, projects, or other important events.

"Low motivation" to start or complete tasks

People with this disorder often have trouble organizing and finishing tasks and activities. This characteristic is related to the difficulty that children and adults with ADD have to focus on a determined action. Their "lack of motivation" isn't because the person is lazy or doesn't understand instructions, but rather that their brain has more trouble blocking external stimuli and paying attention to a single action.

Changes in mood and symptoms of anxiety and low self-esteem

These symptoms may develop as a consequence of the inability to adapt to certain situations and the rejection that they may cause. They may feel inferior or misunderstood by their classmates and teachers.

Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive
Difficulty with self-control and inability to inhibit a behavior
They are often impetuous and speak or act before thinking
Poor planning when carrying out daily tasks
Poor professional or academic performance
Difficulty relating to friends
They are "poor losers"
May participate in dangerous behaviors
Seem to be constantly moving
Unintentional movements and restless hands and feet
Difficulties starting a task
They often put themselves in other people's conversations or activities
They have little patience and aren't able to do quiet or attention-heavy tasks

Difficulty with self-control and inability to inhibit a behavior

Children and adults with ADHD with the predominantly hyperactive-impulsive presentation are guided by spontaneity. As such, they don't only have difficulty controlling their behavior, but also controlling their thoughts and emotions.

They are often impetuous and speak or act before thinking

They present problems seeing the consequences that their actions may have or analyze a situation carefully. This is why the things that they say or do may be inappropriate for a certain situation.

Poor planning when carrying out daily tasks

This impulsiveness can cause frustration. They may be frustrated by their experiences as they do not receive the desired or expected outcomes from certain situations.

Poor professional or academic performance

Difficulty adapting to the norms of a situation. Their performance is closely related to self-control, which causes them to abandon tasks that they find boring or that may not give them anything in return.

Difficulty relating to friends

Children and adults with ADHD with a predominantly hyperactive-impulsive presentation have trouble relating and adapting to the environment (academic, professional, familiar, etc.). Their impulsiveness and "impertinent" behavior may sometimes cause others to feel uncomfortable.

They are "poor losers"

Some people with this subtype may be prone to fighting, which is caused by the brain's difficulty to analyze a situation and foresee the outcome.

May participate in dangerous behaviors

Are often not conscious of the threat or risks that their actions may cause

Seem to be constantly moving

Hyperactivity is an excessive behavior motor over-activity that makes it difficult to stay still. These people need to move more often than their classmates and present inappropriate behaviors.

Unintentional movements and restless hands and feet

Unintentional movements like bouncing or constantly moving from place to place.

Difficulties starting a task

Even when they find it fun and entertaining

They often put themselves in other people's conversations or activities

They act inappropriately, saying or doing things that they shouldn't

They have little patience and aren't able to do quiet or attention-heavy tasks

Hyperactivity is more of a hyperactive behavior, which means that it is excessive, uncontrolled, and implies motor difficulties caused by neurological factors.

Shows combined signs of inattention and hyperactivity-impulsiveness

Shows combined signs of inattention and hyperactivity-impulsiveness

  • Difficulties concentrating on a stimulis
  • Changes in mood and symptoms of anxiety and low self-esteem
  • Difficulty with self-control and inhibiting behaviors
  • May behave inappropriately and talk or act before thinking
  • Poor planning of daily activities

Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire

ADHD and its subtypes are characterized by a series of clinical signs and symptoms. These indicators can help understand the presence of this disorder, which is why the first part of the CAB-ADHD is a questionnaire with questions that have been adapted to the main diagnostic criteria and symptoms for each age range.

The questions in the questionnaire are similar to what you may find in a diagnostic manual, clinical questionnaire, or evaluation scales. However, they have been simplified to be understood by almost anyone.

Diagnostic criteria for children 7-12 years-old

It consists of a series of simple questions that should be completed by the teacher or professional responsible for the assessment. The questionnaire covers the following domains: Hyperactivity and impulsiveness (has trouble controlling movements and knowing how to inhibit actions), inattention (isn't able to pay attention for the time needed for an activity), problems with social relationships (frustration, low self-esteem), learning and development (history, difficulty learning academic concepts).

Diagnostic criteria for teens 13-17 years-old

Consists of a series of simple questions that can be completed by a teacher or family member who is in charge of the assessment. The questionnaire covers the following domains: Hyperactivity and impulsiveness (feeling of restlessness or impatience), inattention (easily distracted, difficulty concentrating), poor social skills (lack of empathy and assertiveness), learning and development (academic difficulties, academic failure, etc.).

Diagnostic criteria for adults

Consists of a series of simple questions that can be completed by the professional in charge of the assessment or by the individual him or herself. The questionnaire covers the following domains: Hyperactivity and impulsiveness (impatience, easily losing control), inattention (poor organization, difficulty finishing projects), academic history (obstacles in academics), difficulties in professional or social areas (poor adaptation).

Description of the battery to evaluate the neuropsychological factors affected by ADHD

Alterations in some cognitive skills may be indicators of ADHD. A general profile of the user's cognitive skills may indicate the subtype of ADHD, as well as the severity of the disorder.

The problems with hyperactivity, impulsiveness, inattention, difficulties with social relationships, and academic and professional problems may be caused by deficits in different cognitive skills. These are the cognitive skills and domains evaluated by the CAB-ADHD.

Evaluation tasks

This multi-dimensional scientific resource uses multiple evaluation tasks. Here you can see examples:

Resolution Test REST-SPER

This exercise was inspired by the classic Test Variables of Attention (TOVA) and Hooper Visual Organization Task (VOT) from Hooper. This makes it possible to evaluate visual speed and concentration. The professional will be able to observe how the well the subject handles the task with their visual-motor skills.

Sequencing Test WOM-ASM

The Sequencing Test WOM-ASM was based on Conners' classic test (CPT) and the Wecshler Memory Scale (WMS) test of direct and indirect digits. Using these tests, we are able to observe the temporary storage capacity and, above all, the capacity to manipulate information to perform higher cognitive tasks, such as language comprehension or reasoning.

Precision Test COOR

This task was designed to help the user evaluate coordination skills. It will be important to control the precision of the movements and combine two actions (visual and manual) to reach the same goal.

Decoding Test VIPER-NAM

This evaluation task integrates notions of the classic Korkman, Kirk and Kemp test of 1998 (NEPSY). It measures the naming capacity, response time and processing speed, measuring the number of cognitive resources that the user allocates to the exercise of decoding, recognizing and understanding stimuli in an efficient way.

The brain and ADHD

People with ADHD may have trouble controlling their behavior due to a structural deficit in certain neural connections which don't act as they should. Scientific evidence point to an alteration in brain function, especially in the prefrontal cortex and basal ganglia, as the origin of ADHD.

1 Prefrontal cortex

The prefrontal cortex is part of the grey matter located in the frontmost part of the brain (near the forehead, approximately). This brain structure is closely related to the executive functions, like planning, inhibition, and updating. People with ADHD may have alterations in this part of the brain, which may make it difficult to organize, ensure that they are completing the necessary actions to reach a goal, or inhibit automatic actions.

2 Basal ganglia

The basal ganglia are a set of subcortical structures located at the "base" of the brain. The main functions of the basal ganglia are to regulate voluntary movement and the learning of motor skills. As such, a problem in the connections that connect the brain structures in charge of inhibition with the basal ganglia (in charge of voluntary movement), causes hyperactivity or excessive movement, which may appear in people with ADHD.

3 Corpus Callosum

The link between the two hemispheres of the brain.

4 Anterior Cingulate

Plays an important role in managing emotions.
