ADHD Assessments

At KT Healthcare we come from a strengths-based perspective as well as recognising an individual’s challenges and needs.

We believe adults and children with ADHD have unique strengths and ways of thinking that can be valuable in a variety of settings, including work, education, and social interactions.

Our private ADHD assessments strictly adhere to a code of conduct drawn from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines.

They are carried out online with one of our experienced Clinical Psychologists

What Is ADHD?

ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s a neurodevelopmental condition that affects both children and adults and can impact various aspects of life, including attention span, impulse control, and hyperactivity.

If you/your child has ADHD, you may notice that you/they struggle with problems related to executive functions, such as memory, attention, organisation and emotional regulation.

The characteristics of ADHD are often broken down into three types:

1. INATTENTIVENESS and distractibility (finding it difficult to pay attention)
2. HYPERACTIVITY and impulsivity (fidgeting and feeling active, saying or doing something without thinking)
3. A COMBINATION of both of the above types of ADHD

As a result the school environment may be challenging for many children with ADHD where they are required to sit and learn for long periods of time. They can be viewed negatively by teachers. Adults may look back and start to understand the challenges they felt at school.

Adults and children with ADHD may have an incredible abilities:

1. Hyper focus – carry out something of interest for a long period of time
2. Lateral thinking
3. Creativity
4. Quick wit and humour
5. Determination
