What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition originating in childhood, although you may not be diagnosed until adulthood. ADHD is characterised by difficulties in regulating attention and focus, as well as hyperactivity and impulsivity in some cases. People with ADHD experience unique strengths and challenges, so assessment can help to better understand and tailor support services.

Assessment process

Our comprehensive ADHD assessment takes place over 3 sessions with a clinical psychologist. We take care to help children and adults alike to settle into the process and feel comfortable – not like they are taking an exam!

1st session: Initial clinical interview (50 mins – telehealth or in person)

  • A structured diagnostic interview to determine whether symptoms meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD.
  • Background history to determine other or concurrent causes of symptoms.
  • Self-report and observer (teacher / parent / partner) questionnaires to determine functional impact of symptoms.

2nd session – Cognitive assessment (120 mins – in person)

  • A cognitive assessment using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V) or the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-IV) to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses and inform intervention strategies.

3rd session – Feedback session (50 mins – telehealth or in person)

  • A feedback session with the clinical psychologist who will provide you with a comprehensive psychological assessment report outlining whether you meet diagnostic criteria for ADHD, other possible reasons for symptoms, your cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and personalised strategies to improve symptoms into the future.
  • Time to review and explain the report and recommend treatment options.
  • Organisation of follow up with other professionals (e.g. school, psychiatrist, GP or allied health professionals) as needed or requested after diagnosis.
