How an ADHD assessment works

From initial evaluations to personalized treatment plans, our team is dedicated to providing compassionate care that empowers children with ADHD to thrive and succeed.



Our assessment process for ADHD in children commences with preliminary screening tools designed to detect potential signs and symptoms. These screening tools, such as the Vanderbilt Assessment Scales or the Conners Rating Scales, help us identify areas of concern related to inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.


Information Gathering

Following the initial screening, we conduct in-depth interviews and assessments to gain a comprehensive understanding of the child’s behaviors, symptoms, and functioning across various settings. These assessments involve gathering information from multiple sources, including parents, teachers, and other caregivers.


Multi-disciplinary assessment

Our diagnostic process entails a thorough assessment, including psychological testing and behavioral observations, to confirm the presence of ADHD and rule out other possible explanations for the symptoms. Psychological tests, such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) and the Continuous Performance Test (CPT), may be administered to assess cognitive functioning and attentional abilities.


Diagnostic Report

Based on the comprehensive assessment findings, we generate a detailed diagnostic report outlining the child’s ADHD diagnosis, strengths, areas of concern, and recommendations for treatment and support. The diagnostic report serves as a valuable resource for parents, educators, and other professionals.



Upon receiving a diagnosis of ADHD, children and their families are offered access to a range of evidence-based treatment options tailored to their specific needs. These may include medication, such as stimulants or non-stimulants, to address core symptoms of ADHD.

Challenging Behaviours

Children with ADHD can be very tricky to manage as they are not always able to respond to your requests and direction. Due to their impulsivity and high levels of activation, they might find it difficult to listen, stay on task or sit still. This can be very stressful, especially with the pace of life and competing demands from family, school and work. Families can get stuck in unhelpful cycles, where parents become frustrated with their children and children act-up more as they can’t always do want is wanted.

Difficulties with friends

Social relationships at school can also suffer due to ADHD. Children can be unintentionally bossy or directive with their friends – their impulsivity and hyper-focus make it difficult to maintain positive relationships. Girls with ADHD might show their traits differently and have more internalised difficulties. They may also struggle with their self-esteem.

Difficulties at School

Children with ADHD can find it hard to reach their potential and often feel ‘told off’ more than their peers due to their difficulty in sticking to the rules. ADHD has nothing to do with how clever a child is but when a child can’t concentrate long enough to solve a problem, they won’t be able to show their true potential.

Deep interests

Children with ADHD can develop very passionate and deep interests in certain topics. Because they’re able to engage in these things so deeply, they can become experts at a young age! They might want to tell their parents, siblings or friends about what they know as it is so important to them. They can often see that their special interest has relevance in everything and might keep bringing the conversation back to it. This can be very difficult for those around the child as things can get very repetitive! However, knowing this comes from being autistic can really help. We can learn to embrace those special interests and use them as a way of effective engagement and communication, rather than feeling the need to inhibit them.
