Learning Disability or ADD Evaluation
The “Learning Disability or ADD Evaluation” is designed to give you an explanation of whether or not you have a learning disability. The Learning Disability or ADD Evaluation is a specially designed 4 hour test battery that consists of the the following:
- an intelligence test
- attention and concentration measures
- a reading speed and comprehension assessment
- a personality assessment
A short report is written to explain the findings. The price is $1000.
The Learning Disability or ADD Evaluations are not designed for children under 16, and do not qualify as proof of ADD/ADHD or a learning disability in high stakes testing situations, such as extra time for the GRE, MCAT, or LSAT. The Learning Disability or ADD Evaluations may not be sufficient for college disability offices; you have to ask what tests they require. The payment for this package can be put towards the cost of a full assessment if interested.

The most common treatment for chronic pain is drug therapy. The problem with this is that many of the medications can be addictive. And the addiction can sneak up on you. Before you know it, you might be craving to have this medicine. This has contributed to many problems in the country, one of which is the over-dose deaths from Oxycontin. In my office I use biofeedback and neurofeedback to treat pain conditions, and it has been effective.

A new treatment has been emerging in the last several decades for Attention Deficit Disorder and other mild brain-behavior problems —biofeedback of your brain waves. This is Neurofeedback, and the latest term is Neurotherapy. This method of treatment has been shown to be effective for a wide range of disorders besides Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); it can help PMS, alcohol abuse, depression, mild brain dysfunction from a variety of causes (some examples are cognitive problems from cardiac bypass surgery, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease) and closed head injury. Patients learn how to self regulate their own brain states by watching feedback on the computer (including your favorite movie).

The World Health Organization Adult Self-Report Scale (ASRS) Screener
The World Health Organization has prepared a self-screening questionnaire you can use to determine if you might have adult ADHD. The Adult Self-Report Scale (ASRS) Screenerwill help you recognize the signs and symptoms of adult ADHD. The ASRS is comprised of 6 questions that are ranked on a scale of 0 to 4. If you have at least 4 of these 6 symptoms significantly, you may have ADHD and should seek out a formal diagnosis.
When you complete this Adult ADHD questionnaire, if the results seem to indicate you might have ADHD (that is, four or more of your answers in Part A are located in the grey boxes), then bring a copy of the questionnaire with you when you seek diagnosis to help with the diagnostic process.

Treatment can include psychotherapy, cognitive remediation, neurofeedback, and biofeedback. He explained that the term neurotherapy includes all forms of training the brain with special equipment while neurofeedback usually refers to brainwave training, also called EEG Biofeedback. Since brain waves occur in various frequencies …read more
