Your Child’s ADHD Assessment

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.

At the end of the assessment, the doctor will discuss possible diagnoses and then you will come up with an individualized treatment plan together to ensure that your child receives the best possible care.

After the assessment, you will receive a detailed report from your Consultant outlining any diagnosis and treatment plan details.

The private child assessment can either be done with one of our Specialist Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists at our ADHD Centres in London or Manchester.

If a diagnosis of ADHD been reached your individual treatment plan may involve a combination of different treatment options such as:

  • Specific ADHD Medication
  • Focused Psychology and Behavioural Coaching
  • Education Tutoring and Mentoring
  • Parent Training

Transferring your child’s care back to the NHS

If your child goes onto medication, once you are on a stable regime, then if you wish, we can set up a Shared Care agreement with your GP so that they can take over the prescribing of any medication that may be indicated in your treatment plan. We have standard protocol documents for this procedure.

This would mean that your prescription would then become an NHS prescription and therefore charged at their standard rate. Please note we cannot guarantee a Share Care arrangement with your GP.

We would encourage you to discuss your plans for a Share Care agreement with your GP before you commence on treatment with the ADHD centre, so that they are informed and involved early on.

To set up Share Care with your GP, we will need to share your clinic letters with your GP, however, you will be given a chance to review these letters and if appropriate have any particular personal information removed that is not pertinent to your ADHD diagnosis and treatment.
