ADHD Assessment

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is a neurodevelopmental condition that can affect both children and adults, showing up as difficulties with attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. It can impact various aspects of life, from school and work to relationships. That's where a thorough assessment comes in. At Healing Spaces Psychological Services, we take a holistic approach, using a range of assessments. Our goal is to provide you or your loved one with an accurate diagnosis and personalized support to thrive. So, if you're seeking clarity and strategies to manage ADHD symptoms, we're here to help. Let's work together to create a path forward towards healing and growth.

Our Comprehensive Approach to ADHD Assessment

You're here because you're seeking an evaluation, questioning whether the challenges you or your loved one face might be attributed to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is more than just occasional forgetfulness or restlessness; it's a complex neurodevelopmental condition that can significantly impact daily functioning.


In academic settings, ADHD may manifest as difficulty staying focused during lectures, trouble organizing assignments, or challenges with time management, potentially hindering academic performance and achievement. In your day-to-day life, you might struggle with maintaining routines, keeping track of appointments, or completing tasks due to distractibility and impulsivity. These difficulties can extend to social interactions, where impulsivity may lead to interrupting conversations or difficulty waiting your turn, impacting relationships and self-esteem.


At Healing Spaces Psychological Services, we understand the multifaceted nature of ADHD and its impact across various domains of life. Our comprehensive assessments delve beyond surface-level observations to uncover the nuances of your experiences, allowing us to tailor interventions that address specific strengths and challenges. Our evaluations don't just rely on checklists and rating scales; we provide hands-on tools, collateral interviews, record reviews, and a host of other assessments to ensure you receive an accurate diagnosis. We don't play about assessment.


Our goal is to help you understand exactly what's going on and identify your specific strengths and areas of weakness. This allows us to provide you with specialized recommendations to help structure your life for success. Whether it's in academic, professional, or personal realms, we're committed to supporting you every step of the way.

ADHD Assessment for Children

As a parent, you may be considering an ADHD assessment for your child, especially if you've noticed persistent challenges that interfere with your child's academic success and social interactions. Common concerns you seek evaluation for include academic struggles, behavioral complaints at school, and difficulty following instructions or completing tasks. At Healing Spaces Psychological Services, we understand the importance of early intervention and accurate diagnosis for children aged 6 and up. An ADHD diagnosis can provide clarity and validation for you, helping you understand the root causes of your child's difficulties. Moreover, it opens doors to crucial accommodations and support services in educational settings, such as Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and 504 plans, which can provide tailored strategies and accommodations to help your child thrive academically.

Receiving an ADHD diagnosis can be a game-changer for you and your child, paving the way for personalized interventions that address their unique needs. With appropriate accommodations and support, your child can better manage their symptoms and succeed in academic environments. Accommodations such as extended time on tests, preferential seating, or frequent breaks can level the playing field for children with ADHD, enabling them to demonstrate their true potential. Additionally, these accommodations can extend beyond the classroom, offering strategies for you to implement at home to foster a supportive and structured environment. By providing comprehensive ADHD assessments and advocating for appropriate accommodations, we empower you and your family to navigate the challenges of ADHD with confidence and resilience.

ADHD Assessment for Adults

If you're an adult considering an ADHD assessment, you may have noticed ongoing challenges that have impacted various aspects of your life for years. Perhaps you've struggled with staying organized, managing time effectively, or maintaining focus on tasks, both at work and in your personal life. You might have experienced difficulties with impulsivity, leading to impulsive decision-making or challenges in maintaining relationships. These struggles can often go unrecognized or be attributed to other factors, leading to feelings of frustration and self-doubt. At Healing Spaces Psychological Services, we recognize the importance of seeking evaluation as an adult. An ADHD diagnosis can provide validation and clarity, helping you understand the underlying reasons for your challenges and paving the way for targeted interventions and support.

Receiving an ADHD diagnosis as an adult can be transformative, offering a new lens through which to understand your experiences and behaviors. It can help you make sense of past struggles and provide a framework for moving forward with effective strategies and accommodations. With a diagnosis, you can access resources and support services tailored to your needs, whether it's through workplace accommodations, therapy, or medication management. Understanding ADHD can also lead to greater self-awareness and self-compassion, allowing you to embrace your strengths and develop strategies to manage symptoms effectively.
