Students suspected of having ADD/ADHD will be referred to a testing psychologist in the community for further evaluation and diagnosis. Medical Services has a referral list for local testing facilities. Students are responsible for charges incurred at testing sites. Some evaluation and testing is covered for students with the Aetna Student Health Insurance plan. Students with other health insurance should check with their insurance company about coverage under their policy.

Evaluations generally fall under two categories, comprehensive psychological evaluation or focused ADD/ADHD evaluation.

The evaluation takes approximately seven to eight hours and includes:

·         Intellectual abilities testing

·         Educational achievement testing
