ADHD ASSESSMENT

Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects an individual’s ability to pay attention, control impulses and regulate activity levels.  ADHD symptoms in kids may impact upon their ability to learn and they may get in more trouble than their peers due to behavioural concerns.  ADHD is typically diagnosed in childhood but can also persist into adolescence and adulthood.  Many adolescents and adults learn to mask their difficulties.

 

Broulee Psychology provides ADHD assessments for adults as well as children and adolescents.  Formalising a diagnosis for ADHD can help provide an understanding of symptoms as well as providing appropriate tools and strategies for supporting the individual.

HOW DO ADHD ASSESSMENTS WORK?

The process for completing ADHD assessments at Broulee Psychology is dependent upon the individual but generally follows the process below:

  • Brief intake completed with our trained administrative team

  • Questionnaires are provided

    • These include questionnaires for the individual to complete for adult assessment and may also include questionnaires for family members to complete

    • When assessing young people, this will include questionnaires for parents as well as teachers

  • Initial history session with parents or the individual using a structured assessment interview

  • Cognitive assessment is completed to rule out any cognitive concerns that may better explain ADHD symptoms

  • Feedback provided in terms of outcome of assessment with personalised recommendations based on assessment results

  • Individual is provided with a comprehensive report outlining the assessment results and recommendations

HOW MUCH DOES AN ADHD ASSESSMENT COST?

ADHD assessments are quoted on an individualised basis depending upon the number of sessions required and the complexity of the situation.  Assessments generally involve 3-4 sessions as well as clinician time outside of the session to score questionnaires and assessment tools and write up the assessment report.  This generally involves 10-15 hours total time from the psychologist providing assessment.  The cost of assessment ranges from $2500 - $3000 for this reason.  This cost can be broken up into payments per sessions or paid in full following the initial session.
