We offer a variety of assessment services, including:
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a disorder that begins in childhood and involves psychological and behavioral features that can negatively affect all aspects of life including school, work and our relationships with others. Getting an appropriate diagnosis involves identifying the symptoms, understanding how the symptoms are manifested in the person’s life, and excluding other conditions that may look like ADHD. The diagnostic process includes gathering information about the person and from people who know them well and learning about how they function in key roles including school, work and at home.
To assess for ADHD, information gathered includes:
- Developmental History
- Educational History
- Family History
Clinical assessment and the use of psychological tests and questionnaires are also important in determining if someone meets the diagnostic criteria for ADHD.
Assessments are currently being conducted in-person and via video.
Assessment can be conducted for school aged children and for adults at all stages of life.
We can provide psychological testing to meet the needs of a wide range of referral questions. Clients may need psychometric assessment for a particular agency, employer, or for their own self-knowledge. Testing can be used to clarify diagnostic questions and can be used to increase and person's understand of themselves and factors that affect their thought, feelings and behaviors. Psychological assessments are also routinely provided in treatment planning.
