What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (formerly known as ADD) includes symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

Why is ADHD Testing Important?

Diagnosing this disorder can be difficult, so if you think your child may have ADHD, it is important to work with a professional to find the best solution. This starts with ADHD testing. We will test several areas of your child’s functioning that require attention and concentration. Through testing, we can diagnose or rule out ADHD. When ADHD is diagnosed, assessment results can serve as a valuable reference to determine the effectiveness of future treatment.

What Test is Used to Diagnose ADHD?

Cypress Counseling Center provies expert ADHD Testing and Treatment.

There is no single test for ADHD. A comprehensive evaluation includes a range of methods such as face-to-face evaluation, questionnaires, hands-on or computer testing, and sometimes questionnaires taken by teachers or caregivers. We choose the tools depending on the symptoms to best measure attention, concentration, behavioral problems, impulsiveness, and organizational ability.

Does a Diagnosis Always Lead to Medication?

Not necessarily. With certain symptoms, medication is very effective, but behavioral and cognitive techniques can also help make symptoms more manageable. We work with you to determine which interventions and strategies are most appropriate. Visit our ADHD Treatment Page to learn more.

Is Testing Covered by Insurance?

In many cases, yes. ADHD / ADD is a medical diagnosis that is typically covered by health insurance. If your policy covers Psychological Testing, you may be able to apply those benefits to these services. We can check your benefits and find out how they would apply to testing.
