What Is an Online Diagnosis for ADHD?

With traditional ADHD diagnoses, individuals take a research-based questionnaire to compare their symptoms to a list of behaviors associated with ADHD. An online diagnosis for ADHD is the same process but adds the convenience of remote availability.

Instead of having to travel to a specific location, such as a doctor's office, you can interact with a certified health professional from the comfort of your own home. 

Even better, an online ADHD diagnosis is generally administered using streamlined, modern technologies, meaning a user-friendly website interface rather than a pen and paper.

How Does ADHDAdvisor.org Work?

Assess: To start, ADHDAdvisor.org guides you through a thoughtful, complimentary intake form designed to determine your goals, concerns, and other specifics of your circumstances. Then, our service connects you to our network of highly-trained mental health professionals.

Diagnose: We'll help you schedule a diagnostic appointment with one of our clinicians, where the two of you will explore your behaviors and potential symptoms in depth.

Treat: Following this diagnosis, your clinician will work with you to develop a personalized care plan depending on your preferences, including success coaching, medication management, and behavioral therapy.

Understanding ADHD

The conversation around ADHD is becoming more informed, but most people still have an outdated view of the condition. To help end these misconceptions, we've laid out the need-to-know facts about ADHD.

What Is ADHD?

ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. While the exact cause is not yet fully understood, research suggests ADHD may be linked to genetics, brain structure and chemistry, and even trauma.

Generally, ADHD symptoms relate to impulse control, difficulty waiting or focusing, and overall inattentiveness. Even so, symptoms can vary widely depending on presentation, age, and even sex, so obtaining a clinical diagnosis is necessary for the most accurate results.

In years past, many diagnostic methods struggled to diagnose ADHD due to its similarity to other conditions, such as bipolar disorder, depression, and autism. This meant some patients would go undiagnosed for years, with some never truly finding answers even well into adulthood. ADHD today, however, is far better understood by both doctors and the general public.

Symptoms of ADHD

While ADHD symptoms may differ across different demographics, experts generally break the condition down into three presentations, each with its own set of related symptoms and signs.

1. Hyperactive-Impulsive

While many consider hyperactivity a trademark sign of ADHD, this presentation is the least common of the three types of ADHD. This is especially true with adult ADHD, where some studies show only about a 7% incidence rate compared to either inattentive or combined presentations. An individual showing common symptoms may:

  • Make careless mistakes
  • Feel restless
  • Interrupt others and talk quickly or excessively
  • Take unnecessary risks

2. Inattentive

Studies show that roughly 30% of people with ADHD present as predominantly inattentive. Because these symptoms may be less obvious, many individuals go undiagnosed or may be misdiagnosed with a similar mental health condition like anxiety or depression. An individual showing common inattentive symptoms may:

  • Struggle to focus and jump between tasks
  • Forget things often
  • Struggle with organizational skills
  • Have a hard time with sustained mental effort

3. Combined

The combined presentation of ADHD is generally considered to be more common than either an inattentive or hyperactive-impulsive presentation, with some studies indicating up to 62% of adults display this form. Individuals with a combined presentation may show any mix of inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms.

The Impact of ADHD on Everyday Life

Depending on a person's age, presentation, and any coexisting mental health conditions, ADHD may present a diverse set of challenges in day-to-day life.

In children, hyperactivity or impulsivity may cause behavior issues at school or at home, whereas inattentiveness can lead to unfinished schoolwork or difficulty making friends.

For adults, hyperactive or impulsive symptoms can cause career struggles or prompt unhealthy risk-taking, whereas inattentive symptoms may harm social or romantic relationships.

While modern medicine can successfully predict how ADHD might affect a person, it's important to remember that mental health is an intensely personal subject, and not everyone will present with common symptoms. For many, this nuance is why a service like ADHDAdvisor.org can be so valuable.

The Role of a Professional ADHD Diagnosis

Because more people have begun openly talking about ADHD, more and more individuals have begun to recognize potential symptoms in their day-to-day behavior. And while this can ultimately be a good thing, it often leads to more confusion until action is taken to confirm or rule out ADHD.

Whether it's learning behavioral techniques to manage ADHD, access to prescription medication via your doctor, or exposure to ADHD-supportive communities, a professional ADHD diagnosis can serve as the gateway to enormous quality-of-life improvements.

What Are the Benefits of an Online ADHD Diagnosis?

What Are the Benefits of an Online ADHD Diagnosis?


Rather than requiring you to schedule an appointment weeks or months in advance and then drive into the doctor's office, our process allows you to receive a formal diagnosis from the comfort and convenience of your own home.


Because we maintain a broad network of licensed professionals, you can always find time to schedule a session when it works with your plans instead of only when a doctor has time to see you. And because all of our sessions are virtual, those who live in more remote areas don't need to spend time commuting to receive care.


Despite the fact that ADHD and other mental health conditions have become more widely accepted by the general public, some people may still prefer a discreet, private option for support. With our process, your results and identity will never be shared with third parties.


Our diagnostic session costs only a $20 deposit, then an additional $130 after your results are compiled. Not only are these fees covered by our satisfaction guarantee, but customers may also submit receipts to their insurance provider to potentially receive reimbursement.


We offer same-day scheduling for those seeking an ADHD diagnosis, as well as a free intake evaluation to help you start understanding your behavior and potential ADHD symptoms.

Comprehensive Records

ADHDAdvisor.org offers a user-friendly website so you can easily navigate between your appointment calendar, doctor feedback, and any other records you might need.

Tailored Support

After your diagnosis, your medical professional will work with you to develop a personalized care plan based on the presentation of your ADHD, your preferences, and any other important factors.

Service Reliability

Sometimes, problems can arise with service, medication, or payment. All too often, these types of issues are time-consuming and frustrating, requiring you to spend hours on the phone or drive into an office. With an online ADHD diagnosis, you simplify the process by giving yourself reliable, on-demand customer service options.

Expanded Options

Transitioning to a digital platform for your diagnosis and care can dramatically expand your access to different health professionals. This, in turn, allows you to choose the right expert—not just the one available to you.

The Pros and Cons of an Online ADHD Diagnosis

The Pros and Cons of an Online ADHD Diagnosis

How to Get the Most Out of Your ADHD Diagnosis

During your ADHD assessment, there are some things to keep in mind to help you maximize the accuracy of your results and ensure the experience is a positive one.

Come Prepared

Before your online ADHD diagnosis, consider having a basic record of your family medical history, including any instances of mental health issues. Additionally, information about your own symptoms, when they began, and how they present can be crucial to a successful diagnosis.

Be Honest

Unfortunately, some of the stigma surrounding mental health continues to linger. While you find support, remember that neither ADHD nor any other mental health condition is a reason for embarrassment. By obtaining a diagnosis, you're bravely taking one of the first steps toward a better life.

Take Your Time

Although you may be eager to finally get answers, keep in mind that it's more important to answer accurately than it is to answer quickly. Don't rush, consider each question carefully, and take as much time as needed. 

Follow Up With a Professional

Once you've obtained your online ADHD diagnosis, it's time to schedule a meeting with a licensed mental health professional to discuss next steps. If you choose to work with ADHDAdvisor.org, you'll continue to work with the same doctor we partnered you with for your diagnosis.

Research and Record

Individuals often find comfort in learning more about mental health once they've received a diagnosis. Fortunately, ADHD is a complex condition with a vast body of research attached to it. Our team of medical professionals will help educate you on ADHD and guide the research you pursue on your own time, and our user-friendly website lets you keep in-depth records of your sessions with us.

Explore Care Options

Management strategies for ADHD can be as diverse as the people we serve, which is why our team takes the time to help you explore different options and gauge whether they're right for you. Whether you need prescription medications, behavioral therapy sessions, or mindfulness coaching to manage symptoms, we'll be with you every step of the way.

Find Supportive Communities

One of the best things about the growing conversation around mental health and ADHD is the wonderful community that has become increasingly connected over the past two decades. If you think that it might help to connect with people in similar situations to yours, consider finding ADHD groups online or near you. Additionally, our mental health professionals may be able to suggest resources and communities to research.

Ignore Stigma

While the conversation surrounding ADHD and mental health has become much more compassionate and inclusive over the past several years, many people have, regrettably, internalized shame and other negative feelings about the subject. As you progress through your diagnosis and treatment, do your best to push away negative thoughts and recognize the courage necessary to seek answers.

Practice Self-Care

An ADHD diagnosis can be a life-changing event, so it only makes sense that you should take time to practice self-care and check in on your own well-being. In the days or weeks following your diagnosis, be gentle with yourself as you adapt and come to terms with the answers you gained.

Now I'm Diagnosed: What's Next?

An ADHD diagnosis can be a transformative moment in the lives of those seeking answers, but the weeks and months following are just as impactful. Once you've undergone your diagnostic session and received your results, our team of licensed professionals will design a goal-oriented care plan around your specific needs and preferences.

From there, you'll meet regularly to discuss progress and roadblocks and adjust treatments if necessary. Over time, you'll develop the knowledge and experience needed to manage your own behavior and approach life with newfound confidence.

Stop wondering and start knowing. Take our complimentary symptom evaluation today to start finding the answers you need for a better life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mental health and obtaining an ADHD diagnosis is a complicated process, so it’s natural that you may have some lingering questions. We’ve taken the time to answer a few of the most commonly asked questions below.

What is the best online ADHD diagnosis service?

How can I self-diagnose ADHD?

Although it's entirely possible for individuals to recognize and track potential symptoms of ADHD in their own behavior, a clinical diagnosis is required to begin care. For that reason, we always suggest reaching out to a mental health professional for help with your diagnosis.

How much does an online ADHD diagnosis cost?

Typically, an online ADHD diagnosis will cost around $150, though you may be able to submit receipts to your health insurance for reimbursement.

While it may be possible to find a free online ADHD evaluation, remember that these will most likely be of lower quality and offer less support if not followed by a formal diagnosis from career medical professionals.

Do you accept health insurance?

Currently, ADHDAdvisor.org does not accept insurance. That said, we encourage our customers to use our itemized receipts to seek reimbursement from their insurance providers.

How long will it take to receive my diagnosis?

Typically, the mental health professional with whom you partner will provide a diagnosis by the end of your first session. For those with inconclusive results or more unique circumstances, one or more follow-up sessions may be necessary.

What are the next steps after my diagnosis?

After your ADHD diagnosis, your assigned mental health professional will schedule further sessions to discuss different treatments and build a plan tailored to your needs.

Is this process confidential?

Our website uses some of the most comprehensive encryption available to ensure your privacy and security. Additionally, all of our services are 100% HIPAA compliant, meaning any conversations between you and our medical professionals will be protected by doctor-patient confidentiality.

What other conditions can you help with?

Our medical professionals are equipped to help you with anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, and issues with executive functions.

How do I meet with my provider?

Our services use Zoom software to video call with you in the comfort of your own home.

Do you offer services to patients who do not have a diagnosable mental health condition?

Yes! As career mental health professionals, we recognize that some struggles are not as black and white. In those cases, our therapy sessions and personal coaching can help you find results regardless of diagnostic issues.

What medications can you prescribe?

Our doctors are able to prescribe medications to treat ADHD, anxiety, depression, and PTSD, including SSRIs, SNRIs, and non-stimulant ADHD medication such as Strattera (Atomoxetine).‍

Although ADHDAdvisor.org cannot prescribe certain controlled medications, such as stimulants or benzodiazepines, we can connect you with an in-person healthcare provider to help you obtain the right medication for your situation.

How often will I meet with my provider?

Depending on the specifics of your case, your assigned mental health professional will design a care plan and schedule sessions as frequently as necessary to help you manage your ADHD.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?

If you need to cancel an appointment for any reason, please email us at clinical@adhdadvisor.org. Please note that we require 24 hours of notice in order to offer credit for canceled appointments.

What if my pharmacy states that they have not received my prescription?

If you experience any issues with your local pharmacy, please reach out to clinical@adhdadvisor.org, and we will respond within 24 hours (Monday through Friday).

Can I make an appointment with a different clinician?

Yes! Although we fully believe in our matching system and the skills of all our doctors, we understand that you may want to change physicians. In those situations, please email clinical@adhdadvisor.org for help.

What is success coaching?

ADHDAdvisor.org developed our success coaching system to help individuals learn more about their conditions and how to incorporate science-backed methods of management into their day-to-day lives. Either weekly or bi-weekly, you'll meet with one of our expert coaches to build better habits and healthier behavior.

About the Mental Health Scholarship for Women

Scholarship award available for both college and high school students

The Mental Health Scholarship for Women is a quarterly award for student women who recognize the importance of mental health and prioritize it while attending college.

College students often maintain hectic schedules filled with rigorous classes, mountains of homework, and even jobs to support themselves while attending school. We further recognize the unique challenges women face in their pursuit of education, and we hope to support and empower those committed to their mental health as they push forward with their educational goals.

As women keep up with their academic responsibilities, extracurricular activities, social lives, and personal growth during college, their mental health can be heavily affected. Research shows that female college students experience higher rates of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues when compared to male peers. The pressures of society, high expectations of women, and the financial stress of tuition and living costs can affect women’s mental health.

We believe that mental wellness is needed for academic success and personal development, and we hope to give student women financial help to alleviate stress and allow them to continue to prioritize their mental health throughout college.
