Your Highly Sensitive Child has a higher risk of developing a mental health diagnosis simply because the personality trait is not part of mainstream parent guidance nor covered in graduate school for mental health professionals.
Be sure to understand WHY your HSC has a diagnosis of Anxiety or ADHD, and isn’t just misdiagnosed because your local provider is not familiar with the trait.

The last thing you want to do is put a label on your child’s permanent record that dictates an ineffective path for supporting your child through her major struggles. Working with a professional who is unfamiliar with the Highly Sensitive personality trait is not effective at reducing symptoms of anxiety or determining whether your child is diagnosed effectively.
