Evaluation and Treatment

Diagnosis and treatment of ADD/ADHD is a comprehensive process involving collaboration of parents, teachers and experienced health professionals.  Medical and family history, information provided by parents and teachers and significant others through the use of certain questionnaires and clinical interviews, and administration of a brief continuous performance test (CPT) are all used to help determine if there is a true Attention Disorder.  There are times when the symptoms reported might appear to be consistent with a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD but instead may be caused by anxiety, depression, or some other factor.    These factors can also co-exist with a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD and are important to identify and address in the evaluation and treatment process. Similarly, individuals experiencing difficulty with attention sometimes exhibit problems with executive functioning and/or sensory processing. Both of these areas are included in the ADD/ADHD evaluation, to better understand their impact on the individual's overall day to day functioning.

The goal of our evaluation is to determine the underlying cause(s) of the current difficulties. If an Attention Disorder is diagnosed, information will be provided to help you best understand how your specific type of ADD/ADHD impacts your functioning in the school/work, and home environment.  An individualized treatment plan will be developed, and may include recommendations for Counseling, Skills Training (Organizational, Social and/or Academic/Workplace), accommodations for the school/work environment, and a consult for medication.  The Empowered Learning Transformation Centers also provides ongoing support in the form of educational materials, Parent Support Groups, updated information accessible through our website, school consultations, and follow-up testing to assess the effectiveness of medication. Computerized cognitive training designed to enhance visual and auditory processing, attention, focus and impulsivity/self control is also available as a treatment option.
