Our Approach


The Springboard Approach

You can’t switch off ADHD. It’s part of who you are — but only one part. We’re interested in exploring the rest. Instead of focusing on what you’re not able to do, we help you discover your hidden strengths and steadily develop your untapped potential. It’s a unique approach we call Discover your SELF.

Should I get an ADHD Assessment as an Adult?

“I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child, now I am an adult, should I still get an assessment?”

Symptoms of ADHD, like with so many other mental health diagnoses, change and evolve with you. As you get older and take on more responsibilities in life, you may find that your coping mechanisms for ADHD symptoms are no longer aligned.  

Perhaps your past fixes aren’t working as well and you don’t have the energy to “pull things off” last minute anymore. You may no longer even have the flexibility to do so. A mental health diagnosis like ADHD can feel fluid, shifting alongside you, as you grow and face the ups and downs of life. 

There are many factors that implicate how ADHD can impact your wellbeing, including lifestyle choices, type of workplace, structure of your home life and even your own self-esteem and self-awareness. 

If you were diagnosed as a child, and you are starting to wonder whether your symptoms are still getting in the way of things you want to do, it might be time to go through the adult ADHD assessment process. You will likely find that your dialogue and narrative have changed a great deal since you were a child going through a similar process. 

As an adult, you may feel even more empowered to make the process work for you, inform your next steps, and allow yourself the space to reflect on where you have come, where you are now, and where you want to go. 

Besides, an adult ADHD diagnosis should not only be about assessing whether you meet diagnostic criteria for ADHD. More than that, it is a chance to take stock of your past, become more aware of your present and build a vision for next steps.
