Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Assessment
If you have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), we can assess your situation, and offer support to help you manage your symptoms and keep your independence.
ADHD is a condition which affects your concentration and patience. You might find that you’re more impulsive and easily distracted, and you find it difficult to focus at work, in school and in relationships.
Having ADHD shouldn’t stop you from keeping your independence. Although there's no cure for the condition, your symptoms may improve as you get older but it depends from person to person.

At our Adult ADHD Shared Care clinic in Reading we can help you in different ways, such as:
- Providing a full assessment of your ADHD condition to better understand your situation
- Working with your GP to prescribe you medication, and tracking your progress throughout the year
- Guiding you to other services and patient communities that can help with your questions and experiences
Depending on your assessment with us, we may be able to offer you access to our six week psychoeducation and support group programme for advice on living with ADHD.
We may also offer a one-to-one strategy session for advice about self-help and strategy development
