Bowen Hills Psychology provides ADHD assessments for children, adolescents and adults who may be experiencing attention, concentration, impulsivity and/or hyperactivity problems.
Our trained assessors 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.
Diagnosis of ADHD should include a comprehensive, multidisciplinary assessment including a psychologist and paediatrician or psychiatrist.
What The Assessment Involves
The assessment process involves an intake interview, behavioural observations, completion of various questionnaires about ADHD and a clinical assessment which includes an IQ test.
Generally, due to the nature of the persons difficulties with attention, testing is completed over a few sessions in order to avoid distraction and fatigue and see their best performance.
We 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.
There is no cure for ADHD, however, it is manageable.
There are different options available depending on the severity of the individual’s ADHD.
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.
