adhd assessment & help in Calgary

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can affect children and adults.  About 5% of people have ADHD.   It often goes undiagnosed.  It is also often misdiagnosed.  In many cases people simply live with ADHD, coping as best they can.  They might wonder about ADHD but never get tested.    Other times, people are identified with ADHD when there is something else going on.  In these cases, precious time is wasted going in the wrong direction.


ADHD is a manageable and treatable condition with good prognosis.  Correct identification, proper exploration of co-existing problems, and a good treatment plan (not just medication) is important.  Most people feel a sense of relief upon learning that there is a cause for their problems and that something can be done.


Pediatricians recommend The Family Psychology Place


The Family Psychology Place offers high quality assessment and help for ADHD in children and adults.


Identifying ADHD is not as simple as using checklists.  We need to know why the behaviors are present and explore other causes.  There are many problems that can look like ADHD, including anxiety, depression, and learning disabilities.  We want to be sure about the diagnosis.


We also need to look at problems that might be present with ADHD, such as difficulty with learning, emotional regulation, tics, and social skills.   Doing a thorough assessment is recommended in treatment guidelines for ADHD.  We don't want to miss anything.  We want to develop a plan that helps.


The team of highly experienced psychologists at The Family Psychology Place is recognized by pediatricians and family doctors as the place to turn for ADHD assessments and counseling.


our comprehensive approach to follow-up care


There is no cure for ADHD but the symptoms can be managed and sometimes go into remission.  Treating ADHD requires a comprehensive approach and isn't as simple as taking medication.  We follow treatment guidelines in our recommendations and provide the following:

  • Parent training
  • Directive counseling for executive functioning skills
  • Counseling for emotional regulation
  • Social skills help
  • Relationship support
  • Behavioural therapy
  • Advice for schools
  • Tutoring

We work with everyone involved to make a plan that addresses the unique needs of each person.
