What is the ADHD Assessment Process?


Are you worried because your loved one is suffering from ADHD? Then it might be time to have your loved one undergo ADHD Quick Private Assessments for them to get their lives back on track. We are usually faced with adamant concern if our loved ones are suffering from something, be it a physical, emotional or mental illness – having someone you love diagnosed with ADHD can help ease your worries and help you put forward the right ADHD treatment services that you think would work out for them. There are a lot of clinical centres that are competent to offer you an appointment for an ADHD assessment process; it often takes less than a day with an experienced mental health expert. Doing so would allow your loved ones to receive a thorough treatment plan that is solely in place to address their own needs which will support them all throughout the assessment process.

A Comprehensive ADHD Assessment Process Includes:

ADHD pre-assessment:

  1. Being subjected to finish more than one questionnaire before being assessed.
  2. Involving a family member or spouse to answer more than one questionnaire – to gain a complete insight of any symptoms that you might be currently experiencing.
  3. Your ADHD symptoms are often lesser during a novel situation, like answering an assessment, so pre-assessment opinion polls are vital to assess the real situation.

An hour assessment with a trained psychiatrist:

  1. Stating your past and present ADHD/ADD symptoms
  2. A complete psychiatric history
  3. Submitting your school and work experiences with former evaluations if possible
  4. It will be very useful if your spouse or a relative would be present during the assessment so the psychiatrist could ask them relevant questions for them to have a better insight of your history.
  5. You will undergo a complete psychometric test to assess your level of focus, impulsivity and hyperactivity.

After assessment:

  1. After the assessment procedure, your psychiatrist would give you a complete and detailed report in order for you to know the diagnosis and certain treatment suggestions.
  2. You might be asked to undergo further assessment if your psychiatrist believes that you have other conditions that might not have shown up during your initial diagnosis.
  3. If your psychiatrists believe that you need medication for your condition, you will be subjected to undergo a physical exam to check your vital signs and heart function. This can be done privately if you request or you can totally do this at the NHS.

Continuous Treatment:

If you have been diagnosed with ADHD, you can opt to pursue private treatment which usually involves having a half-hour follow up session with your psychiatrist. During this follow up session, you will receive prescriptions for medications that the doctor deems fit for you. After which you would need to make half hour appointments to update your psychiatrist for side effects so necessary adjustments can be made according to how you react. Follow up appointments will then be scheduled by your mental health expert until you are capable of handling your condition.

There are a number of ADHD treatment services in Manchester, London and Birmingham that one can undergo for children and adults alike. You can also participate in a research study that the National Institutes of Health are conducting.

Complete Psychological Evaluation

A complete psychological evaluation aims to determine your mental and behavioural disturbances for a successful and thorough clinical treatment suggestion.

You are asked to undergo a number of behavioural tests for a mental health expert to determine the extent of your abilities and how you currently function with regards to various cognitive domains.

The essential cognitive domains that are typically determined during a psychological evaluation include the following:

  • Attentiveness
  • IQ
  • Speech
  • Executive Functioning
  • Academic Developments
  • Personality responses

How you perform on your cognitive abilities test will then be compared to the performance level of normal individuals or individuals who don’t have ADHD. If your results are highly different, then it would usually mean you are impaired in a certain cognitive domain.

In rare cases, psychological assessments are very useful to determine the contributing factors to your neurological conditions and illnesses.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is very common, especially among men. It affects one in twenty people but the diagnosis is determined earlier in childhood and a child who has ADHD will persistently present a challenge for parents, teachers, and psychologists as well.

It was thought that a child outgrows their ADHD condition during adolescence but alarmingly seven out of ten individual children who have ADHD carry on ADHD well into adulthood.

An adult who has ADHD will usually have difficulties in concentrating, controlling their impulsiveness and keeping themselves focused on a task at hand. If you often find yourself constantly restless, having difficulty concentrating or such, don’t immediately jump to conclude that you have ADHD as some of these symptoms manifest in other mental conditions as well.

If you’re unsure of your mental health, it would be best to seek the help of a highly experienced mental health professional who knows the ins and outs of mental conditions. Don’t hesitate to have yourself checked privately or through National Institutes of Health in your area.
