Do I Need Testing for ADHD?
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, also known as ADHD, is a neurological disorder consisting of persistent inattention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that affects the brain’s regulatory functions.
Common signs of ADHD include:
- Trouble concentrating or staying on task
- Constant need to move, fidget or talk
- Emotional outbursts and mood swings
- Loss of motivation
- Lack of organization and productivity
These symptoms can appear as early as age 3, but they typically show up before age 12. They can also go on through teenage years and adulthood, changing significantly over time.
For example, young kids with ADHD tend to show prominent hyperactivity and impulsivity. As they grow up, lack of attention may come into play, with restlessness and fidgeting as common signs in adolescence.
In some cases, ADHD symptoms may be a result of other medical conditions. And in many others, they fly entirely under the radar or are mistaken for other mental health issues such as anxiety or depression.
The complexity and possible variations of ADHD signs make it even more paramount to obtain a precise diagnosis. If you or your child are undergoing ADHD symptoms, we can help you find answers.
How Can ADHD Assessments Help?
Assessments can put into words what you or your child are experiencing. Timely ADHD detection can not only dictate treatment but open up a whole new path for you and your family.
During our assessments, we use gold-standard tools and measures to shine a light on your mental health and plan the following steps on your wellness journey.
Psychological testing lets us analyze your emotional, cognitive, and executive
functioning, as well as other traits, through a series of questions, tasks, and tests. After the assessment is complete, a psychologist will provide you with a report detailing findings and treatment recommendations.
Some examples of these suggestions include:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
- Social skills groups
- Parenting techniques
- School strategies
- And more!
You don’t need to add uncertainty and self-doubt to your list of struggles. Let us help you find out what’s underneath your suffering or your child’s challenges so you can all start to recover. Contact us to get started.
How Do Assessments Work at Heredia Therapy Group?
At Heredia Therapy Group, we offer private psychological testing services for adults and children, customized to their specific needs. This includes assessments for ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, depression, and anxiety.
Psychological testing starts with an initial consultation. Our assessment psychologist meets with you (and your child, if that’s the case) to talk about your concerns, goals and determine if a full assessment is necessary. If so, we will schedule a diagnostic interview and one-on-one testing sessions depending upon your availability and the required testing.
Testing sessions include having you (or your child) complete a series of tasks and assessment measures. We utilize the gold-standard tools for identifying intellectual strengths/weaknesses, emotional difficulties, and functional abilities. Sessions may include completing forms, performing academic tasks (e.g., writing, spelling, math), solving puzzles, and/or computerized activities. The session is designed to collect accurate, useful data so that we can analyze and make sense of what is going on.
Once we gather all findings, we will meet with you to walk you through the results and recommend the next steps for treatment. The entire assessment process can take a few weeks as we strive to make a thorough and detailed evaluation.
