Child ADHD Assessment

From £700

Do you have concerns about your child 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 their day to day life.

  1. 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?

  1. 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.

  2. In the case of children with suspected ADHD/ADD, their carer is also asked to arrange for a teacher or other professional at the school to fill out a detailed questionnaire and return it to our office. The material gathered in the questionnaire is further examined in the context of the information acquired during the first session.

  3. 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.
