ADHD / ADD Testing

 

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are prevalent problems that face many school-aged children (3-5%). The hyperactive symptoms tend to attenuate into adulthood but many people experience a full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. The disorder tends to be more common in males with a 4:1 male to female ratio. The following are some of the more common symptoms that can be experienced:

·         Difficulty sustaining attention

·         Making careless mistakes

·         Poor follow through on tasks

·         Poor organization

·         Easily distracted

·         Forgetful

·         Misplacing things

·         Fidgety or excessive movement

·         Excessive talking

·         Poor time management

·         Impulsivity

Some combination of these symptoms, but not all, is often present and can be very impairing, affecting one’s social, familial, and scholastic or occupational success. In addition, there are many other associated features that are found with this disorder that can develop as a result. These include problems with:

·         Anger

·         Low frustration tolerance

·         Depression

·         Peer rejection

·         Poor academic or occupational achievement

·         Low self-esteem

·         Oppositional behavior

·         Drugs and alcohol

There are no laboratory or blood tests that can identify the presence of this disorder and it is therefore up to doctors to evaluate it through a variety of testing procedures. A psychoeducational evaluation conducted by our trained doctors will help provide an accurate diagnosis so that treatment can begin and the symptoms alleviated. Various treatment alternatives and recommendations are available, including:

·         Behavioral modification and management

·         Accommodations for exams (FCAT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, Bar exam)

 

- Extra time (50%, 100%, etc.)

- Use of computer or calculator

- Private room

 

·         Individual and family counseling

·         Nutritional Adjustments

·         Medication
