      Hi – my 8 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with ADHD she is already 9 terms behind in her learning so there is also likely to be some element of learning difficulties.
      I am just wondering how we would know if it was ADHD alone or how are multiple diagnosis given ?
      Do we treat the ADHD ( behaviourally and medication ) and then assess from there ?
      Thanks everyone

      A neuropsychoeducational evaluation would look at ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, etc. It looks at the full spectrum of possibilities. Everything found would be diagnosed at that time. Here’s all the assessments that are possible:
