ADHD Assessment for Adults

ADHD graphic

The Centre for Clinical Psychology offers comprehensive assessment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Upon completion of an assessment, we can provide you with psychological support and strategies to manage ADHD. We can also help you with therapy for self-esteem and adjustment, as well as building upon your strengths. We also provide mental health treatment for co-occurring mental health difficulties.

What is Involved?

Assessments are conducted over 3 x 90-minute clinical consultations. The first two sessions are focused upon assessment. In the third session you will be provided with feedback and a written report with clinical recommendations.

Pre-Assessment Session:

You will be asked to complete:

  • Five reliable and valid self-report measures for assessing ADHD.
  • A mental health screening questionnaire.
  • One questionnaire for an informant (partner, parent) to complete.

Assessment Sessions:

  • A full clinical and biopsychosocial assessment.
  • A full ADHD assessment with an established clinical interview.

Integration and Feedback:

  • Your psychologist will provide you with a full psychological report.
  • The report includes the diagnosis (or not) of ADHD and/or other mental health condition/s, as well as evidence-based treatment recommendations and strategies.
  • If we consider that you require further assessment for learning difficulties or you are considering medication due to an ADHD diagnosis, we will suggest referral.

Co-Occurring Mental Health Conditions and ADHD

People with ADHD often have slightly higher rates of co-existing mental health problems (Kessler et. al. 2006). Mental health issues can make it harder to manage ADHD symptoms. Just as ADHD symptoms can affect mental health and wellbeing.

We can provide mental health therapy following assessment if required, and it can really help that we know your story.
