Adult ADHD Assessment
Do you have concerns about potentially having ADHD? Medicspot is here to help, in partnership with the Private Therapy Clinic. We can provide patients with an ADHD assessment delivered by either a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist. This can help give guidance and support in managing the stress, short term focus, and emotional challenges in your day to day life.
What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that includes an impairing and invalidating degree of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. This can be manifested in difficulties with starting and organising tasks, problems with sustaining focus and effort, difficulties with regulating stress and emotion, issues around short term memory, and with self-control and emotional regulation. The cluster of symptoms that characterises ADHD can lead to academic difficulties, and problems with focus at school or at work.
How does the Assessment work?
Our detailed assessment has two essential elements: during the first contact, the adult or child in question, and their guardian or parent if relevant, is invited to discuss their concerns and worries with the practitioner. Working together for a period of up to two hours, the Psychologist and client explore their family and personal history using a proven psychometric assessment tool.
While ADHD can often be treated effectively without medication, in some cases medication can help—often in the short term—to manage problem behaviours. In these cases, one of our Child or Adult Psychiatrists can provide a prescription.
