Drawing Attention.  Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most prevalent and widely researched diagnoses of U.S. children. Often accompanied by a specific learning disability, ADHD can make it very difficult for a child to succeed in school. Diagnosis depends on a complete evaluation, which includes testing, by a mental health professional.  The three subtypes of ADHD: 1. Inattentive type: inability to pay attention to details, difficulty with sustained attention, forgetfulness in daily activities  2. Hyperactive-impulsive type: fidgeting or squirming, difficulty remaining seated, excessive running or climbing  3. Combined type: combination of the other two types and is the most common  At MindWorks Testing, we offer comprehensive evaluations for ADD, ADHD and learning disabilities. Our experienced clinicians will assess the type and severity of your child’s condition and recommend a tailored treatment plan. Suggested treatment options may include diet changes, medication, behavioral intervention and therapy, exercise recommendations and more. Did you know? Also, kids with ADHD are eligible for special accommodations at school under an anti-discrimination law known as Section 504. [MindWorks Testing logo] If your child exhibits one or more of the subtype behaviors, he or she may have ADHD. Get to know how the mind works through psychological testing.
