ADHD can be evaluated using a good clinical interview, computerized performance test (CPT) and parent, teacher, and/or spouse input. We are taking your full background history, current concerns, and also assessing executive functioning skills (ability to plan ahead, maintain attention to task, organize, complete tasks, etc.) You will obtain a formal written report complete with a diagnosis (if applicable) and recommendations based on your specific needs. For school age children, this can lead to accommodations within the classroom setting.
ADHD testing can be conducted for ages 4 through adults.
Rates for ADHD evaluations start at $355 after your initial diagnostic interview is conducted.
ADHD Comprehensive Evaluation
There are times when more information is needed. Executive functioning deficits are common in individuals with ADHD. A deeper examination of working memory, sustained attention, organizational skills, processing speed, emotional functioning, and problem-solving is suggested for those who want a more detailed break down as to what their weaknesses are and how to make them better. Formal testing is also useful if children need an individualized educational plan for them at school, or for high school/college students who need specific documentation for SAT/ACT accommodations for testing or when they enter college. (The College Board has specific testing requirements. Katy Psychological Services only uses tests that the Board accepts).
Pricing ranges based on the number of hours needed for testing. This ranges from $500 to $1500. The amount you spend depends on how much testing you want conducted. The more comprehensive the testing, the higher the range.
