NICE have made changes to their guidlines which might impact on getting assessments our children
The British Psychological Society (BPS) is pleased that the 2018 NICE ADHD guideline has been amended following our comments during the consultation process.
A number of additions relating to child safeguarding have been made, including:
•Environmental factors must be fully accounted for and appropriately adapted prior to a diagnosis of ADHD being made.
•A behavioural baseline must be established.
•Parents of children under five must have completed a recognised and accredited parent training course before a diagnosis of ADHD is considered.
•In the case of under fives, the advice of another qualified tertiary professional should be considered before a diagnosis of ADHD is made.
