ADHD Screening

At the ADHD Foundation, we offer an ADHD Screening service. This is NOT a diagnosis, it is a comprehensive screen used to support a diagnosis comprising of the Qbtest, ADHD rating scales, current view, and interview/discussion. This can be very helpful in determining if ADHD is present as the Qbtest in particular is 87% valid and is an object measure of ADHD.

You can then request what we do with this information. For instance, if supportive and you have a consultant we can send the results to the consultant requesting that they continue on the ADHD pathway.

What is Included?
Full screening – prior the appointment you will be sent questionnaires to complete. These are designed to create a more comprehensive picture.

The Qbtest – The Qbtest is an objective testing system that simultaneously measures attention, impulsivity and motor activity, key indicators in helping formulate a diagnosis of ADHD. The results obtained by the test may be used to help form a better understanding of any cognitive and behavioural difficulties. If indicative of ADHD, we will discuss where you would like the results sending. The Qbtest is NOT a diagnosis; it is a sophisticated screening tool which is used to support a diagnosis. Only a doctor can diagnose. The Qbtest is recognised by health professionals and is used to give the consultants greater confidence when diagnosing as it is very accurate.

In order to receive a diagnosis, you or your child would still require going on the NHS ADHD pathway or be referred to a private consultant. While the Qbtest is a fantastic tool which greatly assists in the diagnosis process, we cannot guarantee that it will speed up you or your child’s progression on the ADHD pathway.

Interview and results discussion – At the appointment we will complete additional questionnaires. Results will also be discussed.

Where is the appointment and how long will it take?
Appointments take 1 hour 30 minutes, and takes place at the ADHD Foundation in Liverpool City Centre.
