ADHD Assessment

When conducting ADHD assessment, psychologists generally look for three distinct traits in individuals. These include:

  • Inattentiveness

In such cases of ADHD, an individual gets easily distracted and has trouble organizing life tasks and daily activities.

  • Hyperactivity / Impulsiveness

In such cases of ADHD, an individual is always on the move, talks excessively and has trouble with restlessness.

  • Combined type

This is the most common type of ADHD in which individuals exhibit both the signs of inattentiveness as well as hyperactivity.

Psychologists use various rating scales to help them evaluate as well as track the symptoms of ADHD. Some of the most commonly used rating scales include:

  • BASC (Behavioural Assessment System for Children)
  • CAP (Child Attention Profile)
  • CBCL (Child Behaviour Checklist / Teacher Report Form)
  • VAS (Vanderbilt Assessment Scale)

Psychologists have the clinical skills and the necessary training to understand these systems and use them to diagnose ADHD.  

How to arrange for ADHD assessment

A proper assessment of ADHD requires thorough evaluation conducted by a licensed and practicing psychologist. It is not possible to determine ADHD through online screening tests or during a quick appointment with a doctor.

Psychologists who are trained in ADHD can only make ADHD diagnosis. A large number of other disorders resemble ADHD, so it is best to work with a professional for an appropriate diagnosis.

ADHD assessment requires a complete psychiatric and physical medical history, as well as screening for other disorders. For an appropriate assessment, make sure to choose a psychologist who specializes in ADHD.
