The ADHD/ADD psychoeducational assessment for children is a tool that helps professionals understand what challenges your child may be facing and how these behaviours relate back to their personality type. This information can help shape appropriate monitoring strategies in order to provide the best care possible while also helping them grow into responsible adults.
ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders. It can be diagnosed in childhood and usually lasts into adulthood. With a timely diagnosis and proper management, both children and adults with ADHD can be equipped to lead fulfilling lives.
However, in cases where ADHD remains undiagnosed, children often fall prey to anxiety and self-esteem issues, wondering why they are incapable of retaining their attention, remembering instructions or doing simple tasks that their peers have no problem with.
A detailed psychoeducational assessment done by a professional clears up many of these misconceptions for the parents and the child. Most importantly, it will tell you how best to manage your child’s learning and behavioral aptitude so that they do not continue to feel misunderstood and challenged.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a learning and neurological disorder. It affects people of all ages, but it can be particularly difficult for young children because it affects their ability to focus on the task at hand.
Children with ADD function best in an environment that allows them to work independently and learn through different types of tasks (hands-on, kinesthetic).
The typical co-existing symptoms for this disorder are anxiety, depression, difficulty sleeping and hyperactivity. These symptoms often lead to poor self esteem and poor academic performance.
