They wont diagnose in the UK without symptoms shown in childhood but it is self reported / reported by parents / shown in school reports.

Also from personal experience being diagnosed as dyslexic at 9 made my school think all my problems were dyslexia related and nothing else. Only diagnosed ADHD at 30.
