For ADD, you can begin with an online. There is no biopsy or blood test. Neither is there an EKG or X-ray.

ADD is not a disease. It is simply a way of brain wiring, just as there are different amounts of melanin in peoples' skin, resulting in differing shades.

ADD tends to help people multi-task, at the sacrifice of attention-to-detail. Attention span for boring subjects is also shortened.

Medicines only address the depression that adults acquire from coping with the difference, and help extend the amount of time they can focus, AFTER the person uses self-discipline to begin the boring task or study.

Absolutely! One in five people are dyslexic, so there is probably someone in your immediate family who has some measure of dyslexia, whether or not they have confided in you.

Testing is done by psychologist to determine whether or not someone has bipolar disorder or something similar to it.
