ADHD assessments are undertaken in stages, using highly-regarded assessment protocols, behavioural observations and full clinical interviews.
Our assessments are undertaken by our multi-disciplinary team of senior psychologists, clinical psychotherapists, alongside and where necessary other professionals such as Speech and Language specialists.
We conform to strict protocols and adhere to the current NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) published guidelines, which are recognised and accepted by NHS England and SEN.
We work collaboratively with parents and clients, commissioners of our service for Local Authorities and both public and private health services, with whom we have built positive relationships.
Our thorough assessments are aimed at providing the best reliability and accuracy in order to understand the individual fully. We aim to complete all assessments within 20 weeks of the date of referral, and feedback our conclusion in a timely manner. We work using a hybrid delivery system, using both virtual platforms and face-to-face appointments in our head office, in Ashford, Kent.
The majority of our ADHD assessments can be completed without the need for face-to-face appointments using virtual telemedical services where necessary.
