QBCheck has arrived!

We are very excited to announce that we have QBCheck at the Centre. This is a computerised assessment lasting 15-20 minutes and can be carried out on children as well as adults. The patient is asked to respond as quickly and accurately as possible to certain shapes appearing on a computer screen by pressing the spacebar on the computer keyboard. A webcam tracks the patient’s movement during the assessment.

The assessment is able to record movement, rating levels of hyperactivity, as well as readings which give an indication of the degree of inattention and impulsivity. It has been shown to be a very accurate assessment for ADHD when used in addition to the clinical interview and can also be used to assess response to treatment.

We are the first Centre/clinic in Oxfordshire to have the QBCheck and have already started using it as part of our assessments.
