ADHD Assessment

ADHD can only be diagnosed by a medical practitioner, but as a Specialist Teacher Assessor I can identify characteristics of ADHD to enable any challenges you experience to be considered in education and reasonable adjustments and support  to be implemented.   


A Specialist Teacher Assessor report can be used as evidence to apply for support at university, via Disabled Students' Allowance.​


There are 2 parts of an assessment for characteristics of ADHD, first  the same range of cognitive and  literacy tests  that are used in a dyslexia assessment are completed, taking approximately 3 hours.


​Next and in-depth questionnaire is completed looking at  difficulties associated with dyspraxia, both currently and in childhood. It can be helpful for you have some with you during the interview who knew you when you were a child, but this is not essential. 


The interview takes approximately 1 hour and can be completed at the same time as the assessment or in a separate appointment.
