Our Adult ADHD Assessment Journey

Led by an experienced Consultant Psychiatrist, our process reflects the diagnostic assessment used by the NHS. We strive for a thorough and personalised assessment to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment recommendations.

Our assessment journey includes:

1. Pre-screening Questionnaires for Adult ADHD

Begin the process with pre-screening questionnaires before your appointment. These standardised forms let you share your experiences and symptoms, helping tailor our assessment to your unique needs.

2. Comprehensive Adult ADHD Assessment: From Initial Chat to Personalised Insights

Our comprehensive assessment, guided by a specialist Consultant Adult Psychiatrist, unfolds in key stages:

  • An initial evaluation where you openly discuss your concerns.

  • A dive into your developmental history and key life stages.

  • A detailed mental state examination to grasp your cognitive and emotional viewpoint.

  • A diagnostic feedback section where we summarise the findings and diagnostic insights, followed by recommendations for your unique personalised treatment plan.

What is ADHD?

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition affecting brain function and behaviour. Its symptoms primarily fall into three categories: inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.

Symptoms of ADHD vary between individuals, and not everyone experiences all components. Hyperactivity may not be present in every case, and symptom manifestation differs in adults compared to children.

ADHD is frequently misunderstood, often reduced to hyperactivity or concentration issues. This misperception contributes to the underrecognition of the condition, particularly in adults.

In adults, ADHD influences various aspects of daily life, including relationships, work, and routine tasks. Observable symptoms may include irritability, impatience, attention difficulties, and organisational challenges.

Symptoms such as irritability, inattention, and mood swings may be mistaken for other conditions like dyslexia or mood disorders. Accurate assessment and diagnosis are crucial, involving reporting symptoms in different environments and during medical examinations.

Why Is It Helpful to Get a Diagnosis?

Getting a proper diagnosis for ADHD is more than just a label—it is a game-changer for a better life. It's like a roadmap, helping you understand and tackle challenges, empowering you to take charge.

A diagnosis is not about limitations or labels; it is about support and tailored treatment. It can boost your confidence, improves how you handle daily tasks, and enhances your overall performance.

For those without a diagnosis, it can lead to low self-esteem, difficulties at work, and strained relationships. Untreated ADHD in adults might even contribute to further mental health challenges like depression or anxiety.

If you suspect ADHD, connect with Diverse Diagnostics. Our online ADHD assessment in Glasgow and beyond are a solid step toward understanding, support, and managing ADHD challenges. It is your pathway to a better, more empowered life.

Post-Diagnosis: Your ADHD Treatment Journey

Once you have got your ADHD diagnosis, the next step is understanding and managing symptoms for a better everyday life. Start by having a chat with the clinic about treatment options – like ADHD medications and therapy, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy.

ADHD Medications

After your assessment and the referral report sent to your GP, it might be time to check out treatment options. Medications, a powerful tool for managing adult ADHD, come in two types: stimulants and non-stimulants. The best fit depends on you, and the prescribing specialist considers everything before suggesting a plan.

Shared Care & Titration

If medication is part of your plan, we work with your GP under a Shared Care arrangement or private prescriptions can be provided by Diverse Diagnostics. Your Diverse Diagnostics consultant psychiatrist takes the lead in overseeing medication, with prescriptions and dosage details. It is a team effort to make sure your ADHD management is just right for you. We have got your back throughout the process and will regularly inform your GP of all medication changes.
