Interlaken ADD Testing
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
The Empowered Learning Transformation Centers is a full service boutique psychotherapy practice on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Our doctors are specialists in the testing and treatment of ADD/ADHD and Aspergers in children, teens and adults.
We go beyond labels, taking a holistic, person-centered approach to treatment. We don’t see you or your loved one as a diagnosis or set of symptoms, but rather as an individual with unique strengths and weaknesses. Our treatment is “big picture” and focused on the whole person. We know from experience that one magic pill does not cure ADD/ADHD or other mental health challenges.
That is why we offer psychotherapy, social skill groups, neuro feedback, nutritional, organizational coaching, tutoring and medication to improve the overall functioning of our clients.
Change will not be easy, but if all facets of one’s life are supported, change can and does happen. Call our adult, adolescent and child psychologists today for an initial evaluation.
The Empowered Learning Transformation Centers offers a comprehensive ADD ADHD testing process that goes beyond a simple checklist. We use the latest diagnostic tools to accurately assess for ADD ADHD. This process begins with a clinical interview, where we learn about early childhood symptoms and current challenges that are negatively impacting your life. After the interview, you will be given a computer-based assessment to determine deficits in focus, distractibility and impulsivity, all hallmarks of ADD ADHD.
