Adult ADHD Assessments Kogarah
Adult ADHD diagnosis
As an adult, confirming ADHD can be tricky. Common signs and symptoms such as difficulty with focus, task initiation and organisation may feel very familiar. You might also relate very strongly to popular ADHD commentators who describe their experience, and the validation that comes with a diagnosis.
You may have completed a screener (like this one) indicating a possible diagnosis, and you might have recently considered that being fidgety, restless, and distractible might be more than quirky personality traits.
It is very possible that there is another explanation for these feelings, but it is also possible that the explanation may be undiagnosed ADHD.
If a diagnosis was missed in your younger years, it is not always easy to confirm a diagnosis in adulthood. It's possible that you have compensated over the years by developing subtle and unique ways of coping with concentration lapses, impulse control and attention deficits.
For these reasons, a comprehensive assessment, included a full history and information from multiple sources, is necessary to rule in or out ADHD. This should be done by experienced practitioners with an in depth understanding of how ADHD presents in adulthood.
If the constant effort to manage symptoms is impacting you in a negative way and compromising your quality of life, it may be time to explore the presence of adult ADHD.
