Consistent with best practice guidelines, we conduct comprehensive, multimodal assessments for the diagnosis of ADHD.
We assess children, adolescents and adults.
We believe that it is very important to assess for both the presence of ADHD symptoms and for the presence of co-occurring problems such as anxiety, learning difficulties and emotional regulation difficulties.
A thorough diagnostic assessment will take between 3-5 hours.
An assessment will include: a clinical interview, completion of rating scales, cognitive tests, a feedback session and a written report.
We believe a good diagnostic assessment is the gateway to providing effective, focused ADHD interventions.
Many people have difficulties in acquiring the skills to read (dyslexia), write, spell and complete everyday maths problems.
Our experienced psychologists are able to provide comprehensive assessments to establish whether Specific Learning Difficulties can explain the presenting problems.
A thorough diagnostic assessment will take 3-5 hours.
An assessment will include: a clinical interview, completion of rating scales, a test of intellectual ability and comprehensive assessment of all academic skills.
A thorough assessment is the gateway to overcome some of the learning barriers to academic success.
Sleep difficulties can cause significant problems with attention and mood regulation.
We believe that understanding and treating sleep difficulties is a key to improving mental health in children and adults.
We have partnered with neuroCare to offer Actigraphy.
ActTrust is a device placed on the wrist that measures activity, sleep patterns, skin temperature and light intensity.
The ActTrust device is worn for one week and at the same time clients are asked to keep a sleep diary.
Our assessment provides information about time taken to fall asleep, wake after sleep onset and sleep efficiency.
All information from our sleep assessment is used to provide a tailor made sleep intervention.
