ADHD TESTING

ADHD can be evaluated using a thorough clinical interview, computerized performance test (CPT) and parent, teacher, and spouse/close friend or relative) input.  We obtain full background history, current concerns, and also assessing executive functioning skills (ability to plan ahead, maintain attention to task, organize, complete tasks, etc.) Testing for ADHD includes 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, which can be used to initiate Section 504 plans if needed). For adults, it includes recommendations for improving daily life functioning. ADHD testing can be conducted for ages 4 through adults.
 

Rates for ADHD testing at Katy Psychological Services, PLLC start at $580 after your initial diagnostic interview is conducted.

ADHD COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION

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, which can be from 2-5 hours, which means after the initial appointment, the price starts at $2500.  We can give you a price quote once we meet with you and more fully understand what your needs are, and what we need to do to help answer your questions.  Testing is individually tailored for each client---as it should be.

  • Do you take insurance?
    Although we are currently out of network with all insurance providers, at your request we can provide a detailed medical receipt that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. You are encouraged to check with your insurance directly to inquire about what is covered on your specific plan.
  • Is testing for Learning Disabilities covered by my insurance?
    Unfortunately, no. There are no insurance plans that cover educational testing. Why? This type of testing can be done in the school setting. In the school system, you can request testing for dyslexia. If you are concerned with other aspects of reading (e.g., reading comprehension), math, or writing, you are asking for a Full and Individual Evaluation (FIE). This is done to determine if your child meets criteria for a learning disability through special education. All of this is at no cost to you. However, the school must agree that testing is needed. The process takes 2-3 months once approved.
  • Are Psychological Evaluations covered by insurance?
    Usually yes. Since we do not take insurance, any testing we conduct will be paid by you out of pocket. We can provide you with a detailed medical receipt (with CPT codes) to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement with an "out of network" provider. We don't guarantee any reimbursement, but we can help you with the information to file a claim for any benefits for which you may be eligible. Contact your provider if you want to know if, and what amount, you can be reimbursed.
  • How do your rates and service compare to other providers?
    We are a group of doctoral level psychologists, the highest degree obtained in the field. (We also have one Licensed Psychological Associate, which is Master's level psychologist). If you compare our pricing, you will see we are often not the highest priced-even though we have the most extensive training. Please click on "rates" for current pricing. We pride ourselves in high quality services that is individualized for your specific needs. Our pricing reflects individual time with the psychologist, a full written report with recommendations, and a feedback session to go over the results with you. We often hear from clients that our evaluations were very comprehensive, that our recommendations were individually tailored, specific, and useful. We often hear at our feedback sessions how glad they were to have chosen us and that they feel better about what direction to take now that they have clearer answers. For therapy, we used evidenced-based practices. While "talk therapy" is very important, we also know that learning skills and practicing them outside of sessions often yields improved outcomes and progress toward goals we set in therapy. The treatment modalities we use for indidivual therapy are CBT, ACT, and DBT. We offer parent management training using PCIT and skills-based manual treatment. We do not offer couples or family therapy services at this time.
