ADHD Screenings

Everyone has times in which they are distractible, impulsive and/or hyperactive. It’s only when the intensity, frequency and duration of these characteristics significantly and habitually impede our life that an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) screening is necessary. This helps to rule ADHD in or out as the primary factor. The components of an ADHD screening vary according to the age and sex of the individual. At SPC, we utilize a variety of sources and people in order to obtain an accurate representation. When all information is gathered a report is written and shared with all pertinent parties (e.g., parent, child, adult & medical professional).

Child Assessments (Ages 6-17):

  • Conners – Parent Version
  • Conners – Teacher Version
  • Screen for Child Anxiety Related Disorders (SCARED)
  • Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale for Children (CES-DC)

Adult Assessments (Ages 18+):

  • Brown Self Report
  • Developmental History
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder – 7 (GAD-7)
  • Patient Health Questionnaire – 9 (PHQ-9)

This screening is broken down into two sessions:

  1. Intake – This is to obtain important background information and ask questions about particular ADHD symptoms and the individual’s overall functioning.
  2. Results – This is the time that the scores from the above mentioned assessments are shared. This is also where important questions are answered by the clinician and a plan is discussed for moving forward.

The cost of the ADHD testing packet is $250 per session. This includes the sessions, the assessments, and the report. This is not a service covered by insurance. However, we can utilize your insurance plan if you would like to begin therapy once the results have been provided. This assessment is vital to providing answers for you or your child. The final report provides clarification of symptoms in order to receive accommodations, medication, and overall awareness.
