The ADHD Centre has a license agreement and we use a specific diagnostic assessment tool called the Conners 3, which is widely recognized as the gold standard assessment tool for diagnosing ADHD in children and young adolescents.
This tool has three components, Teacher, Parent, and Child (for children aged 9 years and older). This information helps your consultant to get a better objective
understanding of how your child’s ADHD symptoms may have affected them throughout their life.
You will meet with one of our Specialist Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists for around 90-120 minutes to complete the assessment. The doctor will take a detailed assessment of your child’s presenting symptoms (and how these have developed over time), past medical history, developmental history, and family history.
