Adult ADHD Assessments

We can provide Adult ADHD Assessments that may be used to assess and/or diagnose Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults.

What is an ADHD Assessment?

An Adult ADHD Assessment is an objective third-party assessment that may be used to assess and/or diagnose Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults. Often these assessments are requested by employers or academic programs to determine eligibility for accommodations.

Who Can Complete an ADHD Assessment?

The assessor must be a health care professional who is qualified to diagnose ADHD in adults. In Ontario, assessors are typically psychologists or psychiatrists.

The assessor is an independent examiner, meaning they are not involved in the direct care of the individual who is being assessed. As such, the assessor does not provide treatment to the individual, but may make recommendations to be enacted by other health care professional or organizations (e.g., additional time on an exam).

What is Addressed in an ADHD Assessment?

Typically, an ADHD assessment involves the provision of a diagnosis, if appropriate, of ADHD and other related mental health conditions. Potential treatment options, as well as accommodations are also addressed in the final report.

What Happens as Part of an ADHD Assessment?

The ADHD assessment usually involves both direct contact with the assessor and individual (e.g., clinical interview, psychometric testing, validity testing, self-report measures), as well as well as file review of any available medical records, and collateral contacts, as necessary.

Once all the material is gathered, the assessor will write a report to address diagnostic considerations and potential recommendations.
