ADHD SCREENING

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) evaluations are lengthy and costly. If you want to first find out whether your child's difficulties are average, more than average, or typical of a child diagnosed with ADHD, this screening can help. You and your child's teacher will be asked to answer many questions. Your answers will be scored and the results help to differentiate children with ADHD from those without a clinical diagnosis. Results can guide interventions as well as provide useful information to medical professionals. (Ages 6-18)(This is not an ADHD evaluation and cannot provide a diagnosis.) $125.00
