Adult
ADHD Assessments

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects individuals of all ages, including adults. While it's commonly associated with children, many adults in Australia also grapple with the challenges posed by ADHD.

In Australia, it's estimated that around 2-4% of adults live with ADHD, though this number may be higher due to underdiagnosis and misdiagnosis.

Effective management of adult ADHD often involves a combination of medication, therapy, and lifestyle modifications.

ADHD in adults can be presented in many ways such as:

 

  • Impatience

  • Clumsiness

  • Struggle with short-term memory

  • Feeling trapped

  • Sleeping difficulties

  • Impulsiveness

  • Inability to focus or multi-task even without distractions

  • Low frustration tolerance

  • Poor time management skills

Diagnosing ADHD in adults can be complex due to its overlapping symptoms with other mental health conditions and the misconception that ADHD is solely a childhood disorder. It often requires a thorough assessment by a qualified healthcare professional, who has specialised training in ADHD. This typically involves a comprehensive evaluation including medical history, symptoms, and behaviour patterns.

Referral Process

If you're feeling concerned about how you're functioning or your mental health, it's a good idea to talk to your General Practitioner (GP) first. Your GP is your main healthcare provider, and they can help you with various health concerns. Remember, you don't need a referral from your GP to start exploring the possibility of ADHD.
