Assessment and Consultation
Diagnostic testing and assessment can be a useful tool for a number of purposes. Our skilled clinicians can offer evaluations, which help determine an individual’s strengths and weaknesses or can provide diagnostic information, which informs treatment.
Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, is characterized by problems with attention, organization, concentration and impulse control.
ADHD has three main aspects: inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Other symptoms include excessive procrastination and chronic forgetfulness, difficulty beginning or completing tasks or projects, as well as having problems with time management. ADHD can often appear like other conditions: reaction to a life stressor, a learning disorder, anxiety or depression. ADHD Testing provides a clear diagnosis to ensure the best treatment options
When learning new information, retaining old information, and effectively utilizing what you know feels harder than it should, a learning disability might be suspected (such as Dyslexia). People with a learning disability typically have average or even above average intelligence, which is often why it’s so frustrating when it feels like you can’t use or demonstrate what you know to the best of your ability. When it’s not about ability, it’s not about not “getting it,” it could be a learning disability.
