Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) assessments can be very helpful in planning education, work, or return to work - as well as to provide documentation if work or school accommodations are needed.

Some common uses for an ADHD focused assessment include: diagnostic, prognostic, and treatment recommendation purposes.
Costs: ADHD focused assessment is billed per hour and an average assessment takes about 15 hours including file review, cognitive testing, interview, administration of questionnaires, scoring, interpretation, and report writing.
A neuropsychological assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of cognitive and behavioral abilities using a set of standardized tests and procedures. Neuropsychological assessment can be useful for individuals with known or suspected brain dysfunction as well as their loved ones, caregivers, employers, and insurance providers. Many conditions can impact the brain including injury, general medical conditions, neurological diseases, and neuropsychiatric disorders. Disorders may be developmental, acquired (e.g., concussions, traumatic brain injury), or of unknown cause. The patterns of strengths (and possibly weaknesses) allow for conclusions and recommendations about diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, employment, accommodations, education, return-to-play, return-to-work, safety, housing, and community services.
Costs: Neuropsychological assessment is billed per hour and an average full assessment takes 17 hours total—this includes the assessment, scoring, file review, interpretation of the findings, and writing the report. Additional hours may be booked for feedback sessions upon request.
Assessment of intellectual functioning involves the completion of a standardized test of intelligence. The report will integrate IQ, a brief interview, report of adaptive functioning, diagnosis (if appropriate), and educational records as provided.

A cognitive screening (also called a neuropsychological screen) is shorter than a full neuropsychological assessment but still more in-depth than computerized testing screening, sideline screening, or other brief or in-office screening tools (e.g., Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA)).

Costs: Cognitive screening is billed per hour and an average full assessment takes 8 hours total—this includes the assessment, scoring, document review, interpretation of the findings, and writing the report. Additional hours may be booked for feedback sessions upon request.
