ADHD Assessment

An ADHD assessment is an evaluation meant to determine whether a person meets the criteria for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. During the intake appointment, it will be determined whether a full psychoeducational assessment might be recommended given the presenting issues.

This type of assessment consists of one on one testing, standardized rating scales, a review of background information, an interview with parents of the child being assessed or adult pursuing testing, and a written report. This testing takes place over several sessions. As part of an ADHD assessment, standardized ratings scales are used to screen for social-emotional concerns, in particular anxiety, as a way to rule out any underlying issues that may be contributing to the symptoms described below.

This type of assessment may be used to evaluate children (ages 6 and up) or adults who are displaying:
  • Fidgeting
  • Feelings of restlessness
  • Talking excessively
  • Blurting out answers
  • Exhibiting poor organization
  • Difficulty sustaining attention
  • Easily distracted

The fee for this testing is $1450.
