Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a lifelong neurodevelopmental disorder that affects individuals’ ability to focus, control impulses, and regulate energy levels. Let’s explore what ADHD might look like and why assessment is essential for proper diagnosis clarity and support.

What Does ADHD Look Like?

ADHD can be different for every individual, but there are common symptoms and behaviours associated with the disorder. Here are some signs to look out for:

Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty sustaining attention on tasks or activities, have trouble focusing on conversations, and often seem forgetful or easily distracted.

Hyperactive symptoms in ADHD include fidgeting, restlessness, difficulty staying seated, and talking excessively.

Impulsive behaviours, such as blurting out answers, interrupting others, or acting without thinking, are common in individuals with ADHD.

ADHD often affects executive functions such as planning, organisation and time management. Individuals with ADHD may struggle with prioritising tasks, managing time effectively, and staying organised, which can impact their academic and occupational performance.

Irritability, low frustration tolerance, and difficulty managing emotions are common in individuals with ADHD.

Should I Get Assessed?

If you or someone you care about exhibits some of the signs mentioned above, seeking a professional assessment for ADHD is a huge step in the right direction! Here’s why getting assessed is important:

A comprehensive assessment by one of our qualified psychologists can provide an accurate diagnosis of ADHD. This diagnosis is essential for understanding the underlying causes of the individual’s symptoms and guiding appropriate treatment and support.

An ADHD diagnosis allows individuals to access evidence-based interventions and support services tailored to their specific needs. This may include education, behavioural therapy, and strategies for managing symptoms in daily life.

A formal diagnosis of ADHD can provide clarity and validation for individuals and their families. It helps them understand the differences they may face and access resources and support networks within the community.

With proper diagnosis and treatment, individuals with ADHD can learn strategies to manage their symptoms effectively and improve their functioning in various areas of life, including academics, work, relationships, and daily activities.

If you suspect that you or someone you know may have ADHD, don’t hesitate to seek guidance from one of our qualified psychologists!
