CFIR’s Attention Deficit & ADHD Assessment Service offers comprehensive, scientific and evidence-based psychological assessments for children, adolescents and adults struggling with attentional issues or disorders. These assessments are administered when individuals have experienced struggles with attention, concentration and/or hyperactivity that have negatively impacted academic or work performance or relationships.
Do any of the following items apply to you?
IF YOU SAID YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE you might consider meeting with one of the highly trained mental health professionals in CFIR’s Attention Deficit & ADHD Assessment Service. Our mental health professionals can provide you with a comprehensive assessment and then support you to get the help you need.
You can contact us directly if you are concerned about your, or your loved ones’, attention or ADHD difficulties.
Health care professionals, including physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers and counsellors can also refer clients who they believe are struggling with attentional issues or experiencing co-occurring psychological problems (e.g., anxiety or depression) as a result of underlying attentional problems.
Teachers and professors, guidance counsellors, and support workers in educational settings are also welcome to refer students to our service.
Typically, we meet with you or your loved one for an initial appointment to understand your concerns and struggles related to attention and ADHD. The assessment process then involves the following: an initial interview to understand what concerns are being noted, a review of the individual’s history (including a full review of their early development, education, and mental health), completion of questionnaires, and psychological testing sessions. Once the assessment is complete, the psychologist reviews all the results and then meets with the client to discuss the results and recommendations. Generally a written report is also provided that summarizes all of the relevant information. You will be provided feedback on the results of the assessment, and all your questions about the results will be addressed.
We will provide you with a complete written report that includes the results of the assessment, suggestions for addressing your areas of struggle, and recommendations for accommodation at school or work (e.g., test-taking time; being provided with a quiet study, test or work environment; supportive technology or adaptive environment; note-taking assistance; repetition in instructions, etc.). Recommendations for psychological treatment are also made to support you to lessen the impact of your attentional difficulties and provide education, support, coaching and strategies. Assessment reports can be sent to relevant parties (e.g., your educational institution or workplace) upon your request.
