ADHD Diagnosis

The following techniques are used for ADHD Diagnosis in Dubai:

  1. Medical exam At Neuropedia, we first perform a medical exam of your child to ensure that other possible causes of ADHD symptoms are ruled out. In addition, we also you about the child’s school records and their medical history.

  2. Questionnaire/interviewsWe organise a comprehensive questionnaire to measure and study the child's mental stability, emotional fluctuation, and social skills. Assessment for academic achievement can also be carried out based on the child’s needs. We also do sessions with caregivers, babysitters, and teachers to collect and evaluate information about the child.

  3. Comprehensive Behavioral AssessmentWe carry out a detailed behavioural assessment and provide an ADHD rating that scales the severity of the condition. Appropriate referrals to educational and clinical psychologists are made if a more comprehensive behavioural assessment is required.

How do we treat ADHD?

Once a diagnosis has been confirmed, we provide individualised recommendations for ADHD treatment. Some of these include the following:

  1. Brain training Brain training is a treatment that consists of several brain-boosting exercises that aim to make your child feel happy, motivated, inspired, and empowered. These exercises enhance their communication and stimulate them intellectually. Brain training also helps modify their behavioural expressions in terms of hyperactivity, anger, brain freeze, etc.

  2. ABA therapy ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) therapy is also offered for children in whom it is indicated. It involves using behavioural principles to help the child learn new skills, gain self-control, and improve problem-solving abilities.
