    Child ADHD Assessment

    Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): 

    Is a neurodevelopmental disorder that commonly affects children and can persist into adolescence and adulthood. It is characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity that significantly impacts the individual’s functioning and development. 

    Symptoms: ADHD typically emerges in early childhood and may persist into adulthood. Some common signs and symptoms include: 

    1.     Inattention:

                  Difficulty sustaining attention on tasks   or activities. 

                   Making careless mistakes 
                   Difficulty organizing tasks.

              Often losing things 

              Being easily distracted 


    2.    Hyperactivity: 

              Constant fidgeting or squirming 

              Difficulty remaining seated. 

              Excessive talking

              Difficulty engaging in quiet activities. 

    3.    Impulsivity: 

              Difficulty waiting for their turn. 

              Frequently interrupting or intruding on others 


    At the Calgary Institute of Counselling, we provide a comprehensive assessment for children who may be experiencing symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  

    The assessment typically includes a thorough evaluation of the child’s developmental history, including medical, educational, and family history. We gather information about the child’s behaviour and symptoms from a variety of sources, such as parents, teachers, and other caregivers. We also administer standardized tests and rating scales to assess the child’s attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. 

    Approach: During the assessment process, we take a collaborative approach, working closely with the child’s family and other professionals involved in the child’s care. We provide feedback to the family about the results of the assessment, and we work with them to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to the child’s individual needs.  

    Goal: Our goal is to provide a comprehensive assessment that will help the child and family better understand the nature of the child’s difficulties, and to develop a plan that will enable the child to reach his or her full potential.
