Do you have trouble following through? Are you driven to distraction? Do you need to become more organized, but it feels impossible to do your work when you “don’t feel like it”? Do you desire more structure in your life, so you stop losing your keys, your credit cards, and your relationships? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might be a candidate for ADHD testing.
The first step of any treatment is to get tested. Once we determine your official diagnosis, then we can create your unique treatment plan. At the ATTN Center, we offer the most comprehensive ADHD evaluation available. In order to measure the variety of issues that ADHD can affect, we include several different testing methods to determine the most accurate diagnoses possible.
Your therapist will start with an in-depth oral interview. They will ask many questions about your family history, health history, how ADHD affects friends and family, how it shows up at work, and other aspects of your physical health and mental health.
Next is a series of computer tests to measure focus and attention digitally. Then a special panel of written and oral tests to measure cognitive ability, and rule out other health conditions. Total testing time averages three hours, usually completed during one office appointment.
In less than 24 hours after testing is complete, you will be provided with the official diagnosis. Using this diagnosis, we will develop a treatment plan for you that may include therapy, group therapy, and neurofeedback. If the diagnosis is severe, one of our expert psychiatrists can discuss if medication is the right option for you. No matter the outcome, we will guide you through the testing and treatment process from beginning to end to ensure you are being handled with care and respect.
