Neuropsychological Testing for ADHD

    Neuropsychological Testing For ADHD

    Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (often called ADHD, and incorrectly called ADD or attention deficit disorder) is a persisting condition that is generally identified in childhood, but may be identified in adults. The hallmark symptoms of ADHD include difficulty paying close attention , physical hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. Children with ADHD often have low self-esteem, difficulties with relationships and poor school performance. ADHD has three different sub-types including inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type and mixed type.

    Unveiling the Complexity of ADHD

    ADHD involves a number of symptoms seen in other disorders, so it is essential that a full neuropsychological evaluation be conducted to determine the proper diagnosis – especially if medications may be involved. Formal testing is also important to determine the specific sub-type and identify the most effective recommendations for your child’s specific symptoms. It is also important to note that girls with ADHD often go undiagnosed because they tend to be better controlled than boys are, even though they may be similarly distracted in class.

    ADHD Treatment

    The first step to treating ADHD is to obtain an accurate diagnosis. Our approach to diagnosing ADHD in adults includes obtaining a detailed history from the client and conducting a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation to measure attention and other cognitive functions that can be negatively impacted by ADHD. Following completion of testing, our neuropsychologists meet with clients to review test results, answer questions and review treatment options, strategies, and resources for managing symptoms of ADHD.
