Our Assessment Process

Our adult assessments are carried out by our Consultant Adult Psychiatrist and take place over the course of two sessions. Prior to the assessment, you will be given a series of questionnaires, to be filled out and returned a before your assessment date. If available, you would also be asked to provide reports from your time at school.

In order to obtain a full developmental history, you will be asked to bring along a family member or friend who has known you for a long period of time.

The schedule for the assessment day would progress as follows:  

Stage 1:
The first part of the assessment will include the initial history taking. From here, your psychiatrist will introduce himself and explain to you what the assessment should entail and what to expect as part of the assessment. Your psychiatrist will also ask you a variety of questions including any concerns you may have and why you feel the assessment would be appropriate.

15 minutes.

Stage 2:
For the second part of the assessment, we ask that you bring either a family member, partner or close friend along so that your psychiatrist can carry out the developmental history part of the assessment. From here, your psychiatrist will ask the person accompanying you to the assessment a few questions regarding either your upbringing, any concerns they have or anything they feel would be worth mentioning to your psychiatrist.

Stage 3: 
The final stage of the assessment will include a summary and plan and whether or not your psychiatrist feels you meet the diagnositic critera for ADHD/ADD.   A comprehensive report will also be sent to you approximately 8 weeks after the assessment.
