QbCheck – ADHD pre-assessment service

In addition to our targeted ADHD Service, ADD-vance was the first certified provider of the QbCheck in Hertfordshire. Developed in Sweden, the QbCheck is the only qualitative test for ADHD currently available in the UK. Built on the well documented and tested technology of QbTest, with over 250,000 patients tested so far. Available for children, young people and adults aged 6-60.

What is QbCheck?

QbCheck is a web-based, 20 minute long objective test for 6-60 year-olds that measures the three core symptoms of ADHD; hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. The test taker’s results are analysed and compared to the result of individuals of the same age and gender, with and without ADHD. The comparison makes it possible for QbCheck, based on objective data, to predict the likelihood of ADHD, and provide healthcare professionals with information that can aid in the evaluation and treatment of ADHD. The QbCheck is not a diagnosis but can be used as part of the assessment process.

What does QbCheck measure?

QbCheck measures the test taker’s movements, ability to pay attention and impulse control during a 15-20 minute test.

How long does QbCheck take?

The test itself is about 15 minutes for children aged between 6-11 years and 20 minutes for individuals aged 12-60. However, the full appointment may take up to 2 hours for each individual.

Why use QbCheck?

QbCheck provides qualified professionals with objective measurements of hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention to aid in the assessment of ADHD and in the evaluation of treatment interventions in individuals with ADHD (e.g. pre and post medication). QbCheck results should be interpreted only by qualified ADD-vance professionals.

Where can the QbCheck be carried out?

QbCheck is carried out under controlled conditions which can be in a school, or clinic, by a member of the qualified and certified team of specialists at ADD-vance.

Who can apply for this service?

Referrals do not have to come via a GP and people can self-refer for the test. Individuals who already have a diagnosis of ADHD can also self-refer for the test to get a deeper understanding of their issues, or to monitor the effects of medication. Available for children, young people and adults aged 6-60.

The individual and/or their family will be provided with a full explanation of the test results on the day pf the test and a full report will follow.
