ADHD Testing in Cambridge, ON

Welcome to “Full Potential” in Cambridge, ON, where we specialize in ADHD testing. Our approach is simple yet effective – we’re here to help you understand ADHD and its impact and guide you through testing and managing it.

Understanding ADHD and Its Importance

ADHD, or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is a common neurodevelopmental condition. It's not a behaviour disorder but a more complex brain disorder that can affect every aspect of life, from school to work to personal relationships. If you're wondering whether you or a loved one might have ADHD, know that you're not alone. Many people experience symptoms such as difficulty paying attention or being easily distracted.

Why is understanding ADHD important? Because knowing what you're dealing with can be a game-changer. It can explain many things – such as why it's hard to stay on task, why small chores seem overwhelming, or why you might often feel restless. The goal here is not to label but to effectively understand and manage these challenges.

The Process of ADHD Testing

So, what does ADHD testing involve? It’s a thorough process that looks at your behaviour and mental processes. But don’t worry, it’s not intimidating. Consider it a series of conversations and activities that help us understand how your mind works.

Step 1: Initial Developmental Interview

Your journey starts with a chat. We'll discuss your concerns, what brought you here, and what you hope to achieve. This conversation helps to get a sense of what problems you are experiencing, a sense of what your developmental journey looked like, and what is going well. It also helps to have a trusted individual who knows you well to accompany you through this journey. . We believe in listening first and foremost – your story is key to understanding your needs.

Step 2: Comprehensive Evaluation

Next comes the evaluation. This isn't about right or wrong answers; it's about understanding how you think and process information. We use a mix of methods, including questionnaires, behaviour observation, and standardized assessment tools you'll complete with a trained examiner. The idea is to get a full picture of your attention patterns, impulsivity, and how you handle daily tasks.

Step 3: Review and Discussion

After the evaluation, we'll sit down and discuss the results. This is a two-way conversation. We'll discuss the findings and how they relate to your daily life. You will also learn about the cause of your symptoms and what the next steps in your journey look like. And, of course, we'll answer any questions you have. This step is all about clarity and understanding.
