ADHD Comprehensive Assessment Pathway

When to test for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children?

  1. Your child is highly impulsive and constantly ends up in trouble due to an inability to control his/her behaviour.
  2. Your child has a “short attention span” and he/she is unable remember simple instructions.
  3. Your child’s teacher or preschool teacher is concerned about behavioural issues or violence towards other children.
  4. Your child has no friends because he/she is “too intense” for other children.
  5. You or your family is concerned about your child’s behaviour or ability to follow instructions

The ADHD Comprehensive assessment incorporates an Educational Assessment, which includes an IQ an Educational assessment allowing for an overall understanding of behaviour, with an attempt to rule any other concerns.
