Attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common and underdiagnosed neurodevelopmental disorder. This mental disorder is common among children but often overlooked. In turn, children who are affected by ADHD, but have not been diagnosed, will eventually go into adulthood without having proper coping mechanisms in place. This can lead to issues in an adult’s professional and personal life. At the Calgary Institute of Counselling, we recognize this, which is why we offer ADHD assessments for adults in Calgary, Alberta.
When conducting ADHD assessments for adults, our team of mental health professionals will look for common signs and symptoms of ADHD. Commonly, we find difficulties with focusing on a task, staying organized, regulating emotions, and time management.
Additional problems include:
- Limited tolerance for frustrating situations
- A short attention span or inattention
- Impulsive behavior
- Fidgeting and restlessness
- Being forgetful with everyday activities
- Poor listening skills
During ADHD assessment for adults, we will help you determine if an ADHD diagnosis matches whatever issues you may be experiencing. In addition to observing signs and symptoms, we will also ask about your family, schooling, and employment history. This will aid us in developing a better understanding of your situation.
We also offer two assessment options:
- Basis ADHD assessment
- Comprehensive ADHD assessment
Our mental health professionals will determine which option is best for you.
