ADHD Child Assessment Package

Children being assessed at Project Wellbeing

ADHD Child Assessment Package

Our child ADHD assessments have been developed using best-practice guidelines for assessing ADHD. Our assessment package includes an in-depth clinical interview, validated psychometric measures for assessing for child ADHD, and a comprehensive psychological report.

The comprehensive report includes a detailed overview of symptoms, a thorough description of test results, interpretation of assessment and practical, evidence-based recommendations for next steps.

Some common symptoms of ADHD which may indicate that an assessment could be useful include:

  • Failing to give close attention to details
  • Difficulty sustaining attention
  • Not following through on instructions and failing to complete schoolwork/chores
  • Losing things necessary for tasks
  • Fidgeting with hands, squirming in seat, or an overall restless feeling
  • Often β€œon the go”
  • Talking excessively, blurting out answers, or interrupting others
