ADHD Assessments

What is ADHD?

Attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a developmental disorder that is characterised by difficulties with concentration, attention and impulse control. These characteristics have an impact on the child or adult’s day-to-day functioning. There are 3 main types of ADHD: hyperactive/impulsive; inattentive/distractible; and combined.

Common signs and traits of ADHD:

  • Disorganisation
  • Forgetfulness
  • Impulsivity
  • Poor sleep
  • Feeling restless or fidgety
  • Emotion dysregulation

What does the assessment process involve?

At Bowyer Psychology, our experienced Clinical Neuropsychologists conduct comprehensive assessments to determine an ADHD diagnosis in line with the DSM-V criteria. We accept both self-referrals and referrals from medical practitioners for assessments.

The first step in the process is a pre-assessment consultation. This session involves discussing related concerns and for the clinician to obtain relevant information. From here, the assessment is booked in based on the consultation.

The assessment is a comprehensive process that typically involves 2 to 4 hours of psychometric testing. Further questionnaires are sent to relevant personnel that may know the person well including parents and teachers. Other collateral information is obtained and reviewed as needed including school reports or medical history information.

Once the assessment is complete, the Neuropsychologist will compile a comprehensive report detailing the findings of the assessment. The findings will be discussed in a 30-minute feedback session conducted approximately 4 weeks after the assessment.

What if multiple diagnoses are required?

Our clinicians can provide differential diagnosis to ensure a comprehensive assessment. An Autism assessment can be combined with other types of assessments if this is required or identified in the pre-assessment consultation.
