ADHD

ADHD in adults is often unidentified or misdiagnosed. Please do not rely on questionnaires administered by your physician. Many symptoms of ADHD such as distractibility, hyperactivity, disorganization, absentmindedness, or forgetfulness can actually be symptoms of another disorder such as a learning disability, anxiety or depression. We conduct comprehensive evaluations in order to make sure that these symptoms are actually the result of the neurological condition of ADHD. Treating ADHD when it is not ADHD can be harmful to you. On the other hand, not treating ADHD because you didn’t know you had it is also harmful. Just because you can pay attention, sit still, and can organize your belongings does not mean that you do not have ADHD. If someone in your family has ADHD (or suspected ADHD), it is even more important get an evaluation since ADHD is hereditary and runs in families. We will conduct a very thorough neuropsychological evaluation in order to determine if you have ADHD and we will tell you exactly what to do. We specialize in ADHD assessment and treatment (without medication). If it is not ADHD, the evaluation with determine what is going on and provide you with a detailed plan on how to improve your situation.
