Q: What does an assessment of Adult ADHD involve?

A: Ideally an assessment of Adult ADHD will involve a clinical interview asking questions about your childhood and adolescent history; family history; school experiences; current functioning in your workplace, relationship, leisure time, any education you may be undertaking and a range of experiences e.g sleep habit, overall health, moods etc. You will also be asked to complete some self-rating scales. If possible a close friend, partner or relative may be asked, with your permission to also complete a questionnaire about their observations of your behaviours.
