Psychiatrist for Children offers comprehensive ADHD assessments and treatment plans tailored to your child. During our ADHD assessments we also take a wider look at your child’s mental health.

Our ADHD assessments involve pre-assessment questionnaires, a QB (Quantified Behavioural) check and a consultation that can be up to 2 hours. Your child will be seen jointly by a consultant child psychiatrist and a counselling psychologist so we can gain the best understanding of your child’s needs. Dr Nima Leffler (Consultant Psychiatrist) and Dr Adele Wybourn (Counselling Psychologist – feel passionately about supporting young people affected by symptoms of ADHD.

Following the assessment a detailed report will be sent to you and your GP. If an ADHD diagnosis has been made and medication is indicated we typically offer a further appointment to see Dr Leffler to discuss medication and/or to see Dr Wybourn for psychoeducation and psychological support if you wish.

QB Checks

The QB (Quantified Behavioural) check is a diagnostic screening tool which provides objective information to aid in the assessment of ADHD. The test assesses a child’s ability to concentrate, their activity and impulsivity and is a computer programme managed by an external company. The QB check is an essential part of the ADHD pathway and the results are used in conjunction with other ADHD assessment tools to aid diagnosis. The QB check can also be used to assess response to medication and symptom progress.

  • Initial QB check – Included in ADHD assessment price
  • Follow up QB check on patient request – £150
