I ended up only having to wait 1 month after my referral was accepted to get in to a diagnostic cognitive assessment! I was so glad yesterday when I got called off the waitlist for it!
So I had the assessment done today & got a few results but need to go back in for a full report later…
The thing is it was all quickly paced & I didn’t have time to ask questions yet. I found out some of my percentiles & just wanted to go home to sleep instead of ask more questions.
What I’m concerned about is that, since I got called yesterday I was pretty nervous so I stayed up talking to my bf = only 5 hrs sleep (usually get 6.5hrs), then missed breakfast, was late for the appt, forgot to take my concerta (even though I don’t think it’s working at 36mg anyway) didn’t have time for coffee etc. I’m not totally sure if these things would confound the results THAT badly… cause they were very bad in my opinion. These things late/not eating/coffee happen often but I felt like I should have been better prepared to give a “best brain” example for the assessment.
Plz help if you know anything about how the testing could be confounded.
Maybe I’m just overthinking it cause I haven’t accepted the results yet but a lil freaked out…
I got normalish visual/auditory around 50-67 percentile I don’t fully rmr what else. But what stood out was that I got 90th percentile for perception
BUT 8th PERCENTILE WORKING MEMORY???
Is that normal for ADHD ?
