An accurate ADHD evaluation can allow your child to receive valuable treatment that will improve her quality of life.
Unfortunately some ADHD ADD evaluations are made with the use of a quick checklist, performed by a non-professional incapable of giving a fair or accurate assessment.
If you are concerned about your child's growth and development you should discuss your concerns with your doctor.
You should also make sure that any ADHD ADD evaluation given to your child is performed by a trained professional.
An ADHD ADD evaluation should incorporate oral and written interviews with your child, as well as interviews with you, teachers and any other adult who has close contact with your child, such as a caregiver.
It is also very important that the ADHD ADD evaluation include a full physical examination.
While conducting the ADHD ADD evaluation the health care professional should be made aware of your child's physical, emotional and mental health history, as well as their prenatal care and birth.
The health care professional should use reputable Behaviour Ratings Scales when assessing your child.
A medical professional will be able to determine if symptoms associated with ADHD are actually being caused by other medical conditions, such as hearing or vision loss.
Your child with an undetected hearing loss may appear to lack concentration and focus on schoolwork.
The medical ADHD ADD evaluation should also test your child's blood sugar levels, thyroid condition and potential exposure to lead.
A professional health examiner should test your child for other disorders as part of a thorough ADHD ADD evaluation.
Disorders that have symptoms that mimic ADHD symptoms include autism, depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.
In some cases your child may have co-existing disorders. A health care professional who administers a thorough ADHD ADD evaluation can detect any co-existing conditions and ensure that your child receives all the help she needs.
An ADHD assessment should also include testing for lead exposure, thyroid problems, dyslexia, and blood testing.
Any of these conditions can produce symptoms which may be misdiagnosed as ADHD symptoms.
