Growing up with undiagnosed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can have devastating effects, with adults often thinking of themselves as “lazy,” “crazy,” or “stupid.” As a result, proper diagnosis can be profoundly healing, putting present difficulties into perspective and making sense of lifelong symptoms.
PsychCare Psychologists offers comprehensive ADHD evaluations for adults. The comprehensive evaluation focuses on past and present ADHD symptoms; the person’s developmental and medical history; and school, work, and psychiatric history, including medications, social adjustment, and general ability to meet the demands of daily life.
In addition, Drs. Breuer and Okum uses neuropsychological testing and various adult rating scales specifically developed for ADHD. The evaluation usually includes several other sources of information, such as reports from a parent or significant other.
