What is ADHD?

ADHD – also known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – is a type of neurological condition. Those with a neurological condition are referred to as ‘neurodivergent’. This means that their brain functions learns and processes information differently to a brain that is considered ‘neurotypical’.

ADHD appears in early childhood and impacts your behaviour, mood, and thinking causing a person to be inattentive, impulsive, or hyperactive.

About 1.5 million adults have ADHD in the UK, only around 7-8% are formally diagnosed.

In adults, this may include things such as:

  • Fidgeting
  • Being forgetful
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Lots of physical movement or talking
  • Being easily distracted by things others are able to ignore
  • Sometimes making impulsive decisions
  • Impatience
  • Difficulty prioritising and completing tasks.
  • Struggles with planning and organisation.

Having ADHD also means you are more likely to experience other mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.

It’s important to highlight that different people are affected in different ways. While some may display many symptoms of ADHD, others may only have a few.

Strengths neurodiverse employees can bring to the workplace.

While there are challenges that can come with having ADHD and other neurodiverse conditions, there are also many strengths. For example, these may include:

  • High levels of concentration
  • Reliability, conscientiousness, and persistence
  • Accuracy, close attention to detail and the ability to identify errors and spot patterns
  • Strong technical skills
  • Detailed factual knowledge and an excellent memory
  • Higher innovation
  • Problem-solving
  • Creative thinking

Services

1. Adult ADHD assessment

We provide comprehensive assessments for adults living with ADHD who are undiagnosed. Under current diagnostic guidelines, a diagnosis of ADHD in adults cannot be confirmed unless your symptoms have been present from childhood.

What to expect
  • Pre-assessment questionnaire:

    A comprehensive questionnaire would help us in the diagnostic process.

  • Clinical interview :

    Selecting appropriate evidence-based assessment tools, a clinical interview is conducted. We encourage someone close to you to be present as well as bring reports from relevant organizations such as GP, university, or work. All diagnostic assessments are based on the diagnostic criteria for ADHD in ICD-10/DSM-5

  • Feedback and written report

    All the information; pre-assessment, clinical interview, and other reports will be gathered together and discussed with our team of experts and a diagnosis will be made. This will be discussed during your feedback appointment, where you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have.

If a diagnosis of ADHD is not made, we offer suggestions and recommendations about what your next steps may be.

We do not prescribe medication to any clients. It is at the discretion of the NHS Trust as to whether they will prescribe medication, hence clients are encouraged to contact their GP before the assessment, should they require medical support.
