ADHD Testing

Determine if ADHD is impacting your child’s success in school.

Is ADHD Affecting Your Child’s Academics?
Let’s Find Out.

ADHD may be one piece of the puzzle behind your child’s learning challenges.

Our clinicians typically assess children for ADHD during our comprehensive psycho-educational or school neuropsychological evaluations. This allows us to provide a more complete picture of who your child is as a learner.

In some cases, it may be appropriate to do a standalone test for ADHD. We’re happy to discuss your child’s needs and help you select the proper assessment.

What is ADHD?

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects both children and adults. 

Kids with ADHD often struggle with maintaining attention, regulating their impulses, and managing hyperactivity.

Some common signs include:

  • Difficulty staying focused on tasks
  • Continually starting new tasks before finishing old ones
  • Impulsivity in decision-making
  • Forgetfulness
  • Poor organizational skills
  • Difficulty remaining still

Recognizing and understanding these signs is crucial for getting your child the help they deserve.

 

How We Assess ADHD?

Usually, as part of a psychoeducational evaluation, we assess whether ADHD is a factor in your child’s learning. This process helps us decide if a diagnosis of ADHD is appropriate and how it impacts their education. Our licensed educational psychologists conduct these evaluations. They examine students for learning differences, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and other factors as part of the comprehensive assessment. You might hear this type of assessment, also referred to as a school neuropsychological evaluation. The findings from this assessment inform the development of an intervention plan, support for IEP or 504 plans, and provide clarity for the child and family.
