Common Misconceptions of ADHD:
It is common practice to associate ADHD with childhood behavior and development. However, many cases are diagnosed later in adulthood. The overall prevalence of current adults with ADHD is 4.4%, higher in males (5.4%) versus female (3.2%) populations.
If an adult is struggling in the workplace or with post-secondary education, this can be reflected in poor job evaluations, performance and grades. If this is the case, individuals should pursue further ADHD Testing. McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare provides ADHD Assessments for adults also.
How Can It Help You or Your Child?
ADHD Toronto Assessments give us a standardized starting point for where you/your child may be struggling. One of our trained staff members, a psychometrist or psychologist in Toronto, will conduct this audit to further understand you/your child's history, behavior and responses.
At Our ADHD Clinic Toronto Only a clinical psychologist or medical doctor (psychiatrist, neurologist or family physician) can diagnose ADHD.
Once the assessment is complete your therapist will have the tools to provide a structured strategy and treatment plan for moving forward.
