I think I have ADHD I have many symptoms, the biggest one being unable to focus in school. This is beginning to show in my grades. I want to tell my parents but I am afraid they will say that I am just lazy and they have never noticed anything. If I manage to convince them and they speak to my pediatrician what should I expect to asked/tested on?

Thanks in advance!

You may be treated by your pediatrician, or be referred to a psychiatrist. (Basically it's their choice not yours.)

They will ask everything about you, especially focusing on what goes wrong. They will ask your parents the same stuff. They may give sheets of questions to your teachers also.

If they suspect something else besides ADHD, then they may give other tests too.
