ADHD Assessment

Child, Adolescent, Adult

 

A specific type of neuropsychological assessment is testing for the presence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).   ADHD constitutes a set of symptoms including difficulty with sustained attention, disorganization, lack of prolonged mental effort, difficulty remaining seated or quiet when that behavior is expected, and/or exhibition of impulsive behaviors.   Testing for ADHD can help determine whether such behavior patterns are interfering with a personís routine or activities to a degree that warrants a diagnosis of ADHD, which in turn allows individuals to learn more about their mental functioning so they can perform necessary tasks as efficiently as possible.

 

A common question regarding assessment is the fee for services.   The fee for testing is dependent on the nature of the referral question and the tests that will be most useful in addressing that question, and therefore is determined on a case-by-case basis.   To speak with a clinician about our testing process, please call 832-328-0008.
