ADHD Assessment

Bowen Hills Psychology provides ADHD assessments for children, adolescents and adults who may be experiencing attention, concentration, impulsivity and/or hyperactivity problems.

Our psychologists can help determine whether an individual meets the diagnostic criteria for ADHD, identify their strengths and how to capitalise on these, and also investigate whether symptoms are better explained by another issue. 

What The Assessment Involves 

The assessment process involves an intake interview, behavioural observations, completion of various questionnaires about ADHD and a cognitive assessment.

Generally, due to the nature of the persons’ difficulties with attention, testing is completed over a few sessions to avoid distraction and fatigue and see their best performance.

We can also offer behavioural observations outside the clinic if this is needed (e.g. home or school). After testing, we provide you with a comprehensive report including recommendations for different settings.

Managing ADHD

Your report will include several recommendations for the management of ADHD, which may include support and referral options, psychological strategies, psychiatric or paediatric review for medication, and adjustments to school or work to support learning and achievement.

The psychologists at Bowen Hills Psychology are trained and experienced in helping individuals manage the severity of their ADHD, helping them to cope, and manage their symptoms.
