Executive function deficit is not synonymous with ADHD, but its symptoms overlap in significant ways. Take this self-test and share its results with a specialist to determine if you have weak executive function.
Like those with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD), people with executive function disorder (EFD) often experience time blindness, or an inability to plan for and keep in mind future events that aren’t in the near-term. They also have difficulty stringing together actions to meet long-term goals. This is not an attention problem in the present tense, but rather a sustained attention problem.
When a person’s executive functions fail, he has trouble analyzing, planning, organizing, scheduling, and completing tasks. People with EFD commonly lack the ability to handle frustration, start and finish tasks, recall and follow multi-step directions, stay on track, self monitor, and balance tasks (like sports and work demands). If this sounds familiar, take this self-test.
This self-test is designed to determine whether you show symptoms similar to those of an executive function disorder. If you have concerns about a possible executive function disorder see a health professional. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through clinical evaluation. This self-test is primarily for personal use, but we can review your answers and will be in touch.
