The symptoms of ADHD


The symptoms of ADHD may include any of the following: 

  • Trouble with concentration or focusing
  • Restlessness
  • Impulsivity
  • Disorganization
  • Difficulty completing tasks
  • Decreased ability to tolerate frustration
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty managing stress
  • Difficulties in relationships

 

The assessment of ADHD

 

Although the diagnosis of ADHD is by definition what professionals call a “behavioral diagnosis” –meaning that the diagnosis could technically be made on the basis of simple observation -, doing so is actually very bad practice. ADHD is assessed using standardized cognitive tests and the assessment of ADHD requires specialized training. Different professionals can legally diagnose ADHD, including psychologists, neuropsychologists, and physicians. However, only neuropsychologists receive specialized training in the assessment of ADHD and of all cognitive functions, and can diagnose problems with these functions. If all you need is a diagnosis (for example, to gain access to services), then an assessment completed by a psychologist or a physician should be sufficient. If however you wish to understand your cognitive functioning or the cognitive functioning of your child, then we strongly recommend seeking an assessment by a neuropsychologist.

  

Fees for assessments

 

We offer different packages at different fees. Some packages are for a complete assessment of all cognitive functions. The fee normally includes a preliminary meeting (for example with the parents of a child), two assessment meetings, and a feedback session. We will also provide you with a detailed report along with recommendations. If your school or employer wishes to gain a better understanding of the diagnosis, we will be happy to set up a telephone appointment with them to discuss things further, with your permission of course.

In some cases, a targeted assessment for ADHD may be all that is needed. Such as an assessment will not cover all cognitive functions, but should be sufficient to determine of ADHD is present or not. The fee for such as an assessment is lower than for a full assessment. Please contact us and ask to speak to a neuropsychologist for more information.

  

A team approach


For some people, specialized coaching will be sufficient to get the person on track. For others, medication is what is needed. For some people, however, the treatment of ADHD may require multidisciplinary work, meaning that it may be beneficial to have different professionals offer their expertise. Everyone is different so Medipsy can design a team approach that suits individual needs.
