Psychiatric Evaluation Experience?

I visited my doctor on Monday regarding ADHD and she thinks I have a combination of anxiety and ADHD. She referred me to a specialist and I'm waiting for a call back. I'm 16. What was your guys' evaluation like? Eg. How were you tested, what kind of questions were you asked etc... thanks

Re: Psychiatric Evaluation Experience?

Since there arent any tests for adhd diagnosis is usually done by a thorough family history, sometimes school reports if they are available and sometimes input from family using surveys and checklists like the Conner's scale. There are tests to rule out other things and because you are under 18, the school might get involved, and they usually do things like the WAIS, IQ stuff and other child study team-type tests.
