ADHD Tracker App (Free)Using the Vanderbilt Scales published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, ADHD Tracker makes completing and submitting a behavioral assessment easier for parents and teachers of children ages 4 through 18 years who have already been diagnosed and treated for ADHD.

A healthcare professional may request a behavioral assessment for children with ADHD to be completed several times a year or as needed. This app helps track behavior patterns and ADHD symptoms using the NICHQ Vanderbilt Assessment Follow-Up, part of the American Academy of Pediatrics “Caring for Children with ADHD: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians, 2nd Edition.”

By using these recognized guidelines, ADHD Tracker allows users to keep a daily record of behavior to gather more accurate details and improve evaluation. Once completed, the assessment results can be emailed for further analysis by a healthcare provider who can review the results and any side effects to medication to help determine whether a child’s treatment plan needs to be modified.

This app is not a diagnostic tool. It can assist a healthcare team to monitor a child’s progress with ADHD treatment in school and at home, helping them gain a better understanding of how ADHD is impacting the child’s mental and physical health.
