​​​​​​​​​Neuropsychological Assessment and Consultation

A number of conditions or disorders (i.e., learning disabilities, post-concussive syndrome, depression, substance use, etc.) can mimic the symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Adult ADHD is a particularly complex disorder to treat due to the influence of multiple factors. A neuropsychological evaluation can assist in obtaining an accurate diagnosis and understanding the sources of overt adult ADHD symptomatology. Findings from the evaluation can also be shared with your treating physician to assist in treatment planning, who may be considering stimulant, antidepressant, or antianxiety medications.
