Welcome to the Child Mind Institute Symptom Checker!
Here's how it works: You indicate the behaviors that are making you concerned about your child by answering a series of questions. The Symptom Checker analyzes your answers to give you a list of psychiatric or learning disorders that are associated with those symptoms.
Since individual symptoms can reflect more than one disorder, this tool will give you a range of possibilities and guide you toward next steps. This tool cannot diagnose your child, but it can help you inform yourself about possible diagnoses and will offer information and articles to help you learn about them, to facilitate a conversation with a professional.
Remember, this tool is not a substitute for a diagnostic evaluation by a medical or mental health professional. If you believe your child has a psychiatric or learning disorder, please consult a professional.
Note: We do not collect any personally identifiable information.

Based on your responses to the questions in the Symptom Checker, here are some conditions you may want to learn more about. This page is designed to help you be informed and guide you towards next steps.
It is important to understand that these results are not a diagnosis. If information on a particular disorder appears in your results, it does not necessarily mean that your child meets the criteria for that disorder. It does mean that you reported symptoms associated with that disorder.
Remember, these results are purely educational and are not intended to replace the advice, diagnosis, or treatment offered by a medical or mental health professional. If you believe your child has a psychiatric or learning disorder, please consult a professional.
