NEED TO KNOW
ADHD is a treatable neurodevelopmental condition. It occurs more often in boys and is easily missed in girls. In the UK, there’s often a delay in diagnosis, with the average age at diagnosis reported as 11 years. ADHD affects each individual differently, and everyone’s story of living with ADHD is uniquely different. The difficulties from ADHD are present at home, at school and in other social settings such as sporting clubs. ADHD has a heritability of between 60-70%, which suggests that it runs in families. It is believed to be the result of several genes, each with a small effect contributing to the clinical picture. It occurs in about 5-6 in every 100 children, regardless of geographical or cultural variation. ADHD symptoms are categorised as difficulties of impairments in three domains: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. ADHD will persist into adulthood in about two-thirds of children diagnosed with the condition.
Oftentimes, a child or young person may have ADHD alongside other behavioural, emotional or neurodiverse conditions such as autism, oppositional defiance disorder, conduct disorder, substance misuse problems or a mood and anxiety disorder. This coexistence (or co-morbidity) may complicate the clinical picture and make diagnosis and treatment a bit more difficult. Complex ADHD also presents young people with even more difficulties and challenges.
FIX it EARLY
Outcomes may be categorised into academic attainment, anti-social behaviour, non-medicinal drug use/addictive behaviour, obesity, occupational difficulties, self-esteem, relationships and social functioning. Without treatment, children and young people with ADHD have poorer outcomes in all categories. Treatment for ADHD improved long-term outcomes compared with untreated ADHD*

GET STARTED IN 4 SIMPLE STEPS
Book a gold standard assessment at our London ADHD clinic to confirm the diagnosis. A ‘gold standard’ assessment has four elements. First, we’ll get you and your parents to complete a general health form. Then, we’ll send you, your parents, and your teacher a link to complete Conners’ assessment forms. The consultant psychiatrist then meets you for a clinical interview during which the Young DIVA-5 is completed. There’s also a review of any relevant school or previous assessment reports.
