Diagnosing ADHD and ADD

The first step to improving your life

Some people occasionally display behaviors consistent with the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), such as concentration problems and inattention. However, these can be due to other issues and/or medical problems, and getting a thorough assessment and diagnosis is important - even critical to identifying if you or your child has ADD/ADHD.

The Center for Attention Deficit an Learning Disorders uses leading psychological tools for assessing ADD/ADHD, which generally include gathering key information and then analyzing what is found. We use several traditional and innovative methods:

  • A review and analysis of symptoms
  • Understanding of past and present behavioral problems, including ADD/ADHD rating scales
  • Psychological testing, including computerized tests such as Conners' Continuous Performance Test, Third Edition (CPT-3), Conners Continuous Auditory Test of Attention (CATA), T.O.V.A®, and Gordon Diagnostic Systems
  • Brain Mapping (qEEG/quantitative EEG)

We may also look into other psychological tests to investigate the possibility of additional learning disabilities, disorders or emotional problems.
