Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Evaluations

Individuals with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) often show symptoms in early childhood. Parents may notice their child is more active, talkative, impulsive, or has more difficulties listening or following directions than their other siblings or peers.

 

Our evaluations assess for the three types of ADHD: Inattentive Type, Hyperactive Type and Combined Type. For an ADHD evaluation, the psychologist will gather you or your child’s history and background of symptoms, review appropriate records such as medical, psychological, or school/employment records, and conduct a variety of tests, questionnaires, rating scales, intellectual screenings, and measures of sustained attention and distractability. Additionally, questionnaires may be sent, or interviews may be conducted, with other people such as a teacher or daycare provider with proper consent.

 

The results from a complete evaluation can be used to develop a treatment plan that is individualized and right for each specific client, including recommendations in the best way to support the client at home, at school and in other activities.
