About ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity/Impulsivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It is characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and/or impulsivity that can significantly impair an individual’s functioning in daily life. This disorder typically emerges in childhood and can continue into adulthood, affecting various aspects of an individual’s life, including academic performance, work productivity, relationships, and overall well-being.

 

An ADHD Assessment is a comprehensive evaluation process used to diagnose Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. This involves interviews and questionnaires to identify symptoms and assess their impact on daily life. An ADHD diagnosis provides clarity around the disorder and helps individuals seek strategies and interventions, including therapy, medication, or lifestyle adjustments, to effectively manage symptoms and enhance well-being. Additionally, psychodiagnostic testing will be completed to identify any comorbid mental health conditions.
