Evaluations for ADHD

Specializing in Neurodiversity Affirming specific evaluations for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder for children and adults

Therefore, a comprehensive evaluation is necessary to establish a diagnosis, rule out other causes, and determine the presence or absence of co-existing conditions.

Consequently, the Comprehensive Evaluation is sufficient for most needs while the Computer Screening is best used as additional information to aid in your prescriber’s diagnosis and treatment.  

We have intentionally chosen specific assessments for their neurodiversity affirming, non-pathologizing approach to understanding, assessing and describing ADHD and the the core executive functioning pieces that are often present. These standardized behavior rating scales from the client, their parents and caregivers, teachers, and other collateral sources further inform the evaluation. 

The QbCheck and other CPTs are not diagnostic – and not always necessary for diagnosis – but they can help give us a clearer picture of what someone’s ADHD symptoms might look like.

The objective data can be particularly helpful for assessing clients with more classically inattentive presentations that may often be missed as well as clients with co-occurring diagnoses such as anxiety and mood disorders. y

Occasionally, ADHD test-takers who are high camouflaging, high intelligence, or who are interested in the challenge and motivated by the urgency of the test are able to over-focus and appear neurotypical on the QbCheck.

The feedback appointment allows the opportunity for the test-taker’s experience of the objective test to be processed as additional data to inform the evaluation.

QbCheck allows you to complete the computer test in the comfort of your own space using a laptop or desktop computer with a camera. All of the other behavior rating scales and assessments are also sent to you electronically to complete.

Vann Counseling & Consulting is not in-network with any insurance and all clients are self-pay. Additionally, insurance does not typically cover most evaluations for ADHD.

We are happy to provide a superbill for you to attempt insurance reimbursement.

Can the evaluation be used for accommodations for school, work, or for high stakes testing?

The Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation is sufficient for seeking accommodations for work, school, and high-stakes testing. We have confirmed with all of the major testing companies that our evaluation would be accepted.

However, it is important to note that a diagnosis does not mean that an institution will consider a person disabled under the law. We cannot guarantee that your school, employer, or other institution will be able or willing to implement the accommodations recommended in your report.

Parents of K-12 students who receive an ADHD diagnosis should request in writing that their student be evaluated for a 504 Plan and share their ADHD Evaluation results with the school. You may also choose to get additional documentation support from your child’s physician confirming their diagnosis.

Diagnosis for medication management

Some prescribers are comfortable treating ADHD based on the Computer Screening while others require the Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation. You should ask your prescriber what they require in order to medically treat your ADHD.
