ADHD Evaluations



Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is officially diagnosed when a patient possesses a certain number of specific symptoms. Although it is not defined by neuropsychological testing, the diagnosis also states that the symptoms must not be due to some other disorder, such as a neurological problem, psychopathology or other medical problems. Neuropsychological testing is a more accurate way of determining if you have ADHD and to rule out other possible disorders. In other words, testing helps clarify the diagnostic picture.






The Brain Clinic offers several different options for ADHD testing:




 




 The Brief ADHD Evaluation






The Brief ADHD evaluation is designed to give you an explanation of whether or not you have ADHD. It is a specially designed 4-5 hour test battery that consists of the following:





  • intelligence test


  • attention and concentration measures


  • reading speed and comprehension


  • personality assessment




A short report is written to explain the findings.

The Brief Evaluations are not designed for children under 16, and it does not qualify as proof of ADHD or LD in high stakes testing situations, such as extra time for the GRE, MCAT, or LSAT. The Brief Evaluations may not be sufficient for college disability offices; you have to ask what tests they require.    




    




 Neuropsychological Evaluations




A neuropsychological evaluation emphasizes cognitive abilities having to do with neurological disorders, such as visual and verbal memory, fine motor coordination, shifting of sets, and novel abstract reasoning. A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation includes the following:





  •  a full intelligence battery


  • measures of verbal and visual memory


  • measures of executive functioning


  • measures academic abilities


  • performance and attention battery


  • personality assessment
