ADD testing, what to expect?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've had pretty bad concentration troubles since i got depression 3/4 years ago. Lately it's been worse, and I have an appointment with the ADD/ADHD/ dyslexia etc team at my college, because I heard they can screen for it, to see if its anything more than just the depression, and to see if I can learn some techniques/ get some support even if it isn't. Does anyone have any idea what I can expect?

    Hi Evenstar,

    It's good to hear that your college is doing someting to support you with your concentration problems. By doing these tests is sound's like the possibility of ADD / ADHD can explored. This page Thesite has may be of some use to you. Or you coud also try calling the ADDISS helpline? (020 8952 2800)

    Let us know how you get on, :)

    I think the intake/testing is different depending on the doctor's practice. For my 9 year old's diagnosis with add and adhd, my 6 year old's evaluation and my own diagnoses it involved evaluations filled out by teachers, parents or spouse. They then scored the evaluations and made the diagnosis from there.
