The 22-item self-assessment can help find out if you are a neurodivergent. The assessment can also help understand the unique strengths and challenges you might be facing. Being neurodivergent does not mean a disorder or deficit but in some cases, neurodivergent individuals might be suffering from autism, ADHD, or dyslexia.
The Neurodivergent Test is provided for educational purposes only, and the results indicate the percentage of neurodivergent traits you may exhibit. This test is not affiliated with any part of the research conducted on neurodivergence. Its accuracy and validity have been measured through controlled research and feedback.
Development of the Neurodivergent Self-test.
Being a Neurodivergent does not mean that a person has any psychological disorder. When an individual shows the neurological functioning as different from a typical person it is considered as neurogivergent. Being a nerogivergent does not mean a person whose neurological development and function is different from the average has any type of defect but it means the persons brain is functions in a different way of processing information and perceiving the world around in a different way.
Neurodivergent individuals do have some strengths and also they face various social, psychological, Academic, and communication challenges.
There are various research organizations and institutions that focus on the research of neurodivergence such as the autism research institute (ARI) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
There is no official self-assessment tool developed to measure the neuro divergency in an individual. There is no tool that we can consider to be a substitute for professional diagnosis. This self-assessment was developed by psychology student Deen Mohd while writing research papers on autism and ADHD disorders.
In the early development, Deen Mohd used the online feedback system for the accuracy and validity of the test but still, it can not be used as a self diagnosis of any psychological condition. The test can provide insights and can measure the traits you may be exhibiting but can not replace the official diagnosis of any psychological condition.
