Take A Test:

This section outlines the procedure for testing and evaluations for ADD/ADHD in adults. It will important to determine if your symptoms are the result of an attention deficit or from another neuropsychological (cognitive processing) difference, or if you are experiencing neuropsychological symptoms for other reasons like anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation, or other common causes. We can't begin to treat the symptoms until we fully understand the cause.

 

We also provide counseling or therapy to help patients with ADD/ADHD to better cope with the emotional and neuropsychological challenges caused by their attention deficits, and by the anxiety that often accompanies them. These sessions may also include coaching to help improve time management, organization, planning, job skills, social skills, life skills and relationship skills.

I am sure your concerns about a neuropsychological difference deserve exploring -- to what extent, will not so much depend on your budget, but depend more on how much your day-to-day life and relationships may improve, as well as your job tasks and career objectives.

 

The most significant symptom that many people mention is the suggestion that they may not be as smart as they thought they were, or they feel they are not achieving their full potential. The most severe impact of a neuropsychological difference can ultimately have on a person, is on his/her self-esteem. Throughout their lives, their mistakes prompt others to react to them as if they were “lazy, crazy and stupid”. Without investing the personal time and money required to get properly diagnosed and treated, they eventually incorrectly conclude that, at least in some areas of their lives, that they actually are lazy, crazy or stupid. This would normally not be so bad, but it inevitably leads to individuals suffering from the feeling that they are not fulfilling their true potential, not only in their careers, but as a wife or husband, mother or father, friend, daughter or son, and it ultimately impacts their social, family and personal lives as well as their academic success or career objectives.
