The Focused Mind ADHD Counseling Approach To ADHD Testing

Before ADHD testing, many of our clients wanted to understand why it was a struggle to get things done. Like you, they longed to manage overwhelming emotions and declutter their life. Most of all, they wanted to know why they felt like they were struggling to fit into a world that seemed built for someone else. Like them, you deserve answers and a path forward.

Here is our ADHD testing process:

  • We start with a fifteen-minute phone consultation to learn more about you. Then we can schedule your ADHD testing. Don’t worry, we know the word “testing” may sound overwhelming, but we promise to make the process as easygoing as possible.
  • ADHD testing starts with a comprehensive interview. We will discuss your past and present, family history, medical history, and explore your most pressing concerns. Because it is not uncommon for people with ADHD to have difficulty with memory recall, we’ll have you bring data collected from a friend or family member who knows you well.
  • You will also complete a series of testing questionnaires.
  • Lastly, our testing also includes the ADHD portions from a neuropsychological evaluation, such as computerized testing that provides data on an individual’s attention span and impulse control.
  • Once all the information and data have been collected, your clinician will calculate your results to determine a diagnosis and make personalized recommendations. If it turns out that you have ADHD, we will collaborate on an individualized treatment plan.
  • Common ADHD treatment options include: ADHD therapy, psychoeducation (informing yourself about ADHD), and/or medication.
  • One week after testing, you’ll also receive a written report that explains your diagnosis and outlines all of the empirical data collected. This report helps to formalize your diagnosis and can be used to help collaborate with your doctor and treatment team to decide on the best treatments available.
  • Most of all: we will help you turn ADHD into a superpower.
