ADHD Treatment

The basic parts of an ADHD evaluation include:

1. Conducting a detailed clinical interview with the patient. We may ask for prior medical records, academic records, and/or collateral interviews with other people in the patient’s life.

2. Administering symptom rating scales to the patient and, usually, at least one other person who knows the patient well (e.g. a parent, best friend, spouse, coworker).

3. Ruling out other possible explanations for the symptoms. This is why we ask about way more than just your attention problems during the evaluation. 

We may conduct additional testing when we feel that it is clinically necessary. Additional testing is used to gather additional information or to rule out other potential causes of the symptoms.

Other tests we might use:

  • IQ and/or achievement testing to rule out a learning disorder and to assess cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
  • Tests of attention and other aspects of executive functioning. 
  • Psychological tests to examine for other mental health problems that may be causing or contributing to the symptoms
