ADHD AssessmentsFor Children, Adolescents & Adults

At Bellarine Psychology, we specialise in providing comprehensive ADHD assessments for adults and children. We understand that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can significantly impact individuals' daily lives, affecting their relationships, academic or professional performance, and overall well-being. Our dedicated team of experienced psychologists is here to offer support, guidance, and evidence-based assessments to help diagnose and manage ADHD.

Our Approach

We believe in taking a holistic and personalised approach to ADHD assessments. Our aim is to provide a thorough evaluation that considers each individual's unique needs, symptoms, and challenges. We recognise that ADHD presents differently in children and adults, requiring tailored assessments and strategies to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment planning.

Assessment Services for Children

We offer specialised ADHD assessments for children, designed to evaluate their cognitive abilities, attention span, impulsivity, and hyperactivity levels. Our assessments include a combination of standardised tests, clinical interviews, behavioural observations, and parent and teacher questionnaires. By utilising these comprehensive evaluation methods, we can provide a clear understanding of the child's symptoms and their impact on various areas of their life, such as school performance, behaviour, and social interactions. The results of the assessment will guide our recommendations for intervention and support strategies to help children thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Assessment Services for Adults

Our practice also offers ADHD assessments for adults who suspect they may have ADHD or want to gain a deeper understanding of their cognitive functioning. Adult ADHD assessments involve an assessment of attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity symptoms, as well as a review of childhood history and current challenges. Through a combination of clinical interviews, self-report measures, and where required, cognitive assessments, we aim to identify any ADHD-related difficulties that may be impacting the individual's personal and professional life. Our assessments help adults gain insights into their strengths and weaknesses and assist them in developing effective coping strategies and treatment plans to manage their symptoms.

Our Commitment to Quality Care

At our practice, we are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to individuals seeking ADHD assessments. Our team of psychologists has extensive experience in the field of ADHD assessment and treatment, and we stay up to date with the latest research and diagnostic criteria. We understand that an accurate diagnosis is crucial for effective intervention, and we take the time to listen to our clients' concerns and experiences to provide personalised assessments and recommendations.

Getting Started

If you or your child are experiencing difficulties with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity, we encourage you to take the first step and contact us to schedule an ADHD assessment with our practice. We are here to provide support, answer your questions, and guide you through the assessment process. Together, we can work towards understanding your unique strengths and challenges and develop a comprehensive plan to help you or your child thrive.

Regional Outreach Services

We believe early and accurate diagnosis is crucial for ADHD, cognitive differences and ASD, however, we understand accessing these vital assessments can be difficult for those living in regional areas. That's why we're committed to bridging the gap! We offer dedicated outreach programs specifically designed to serve children and adults in regional Victoria and Far North Queensland.
