95% of the parents who phone our office say that their child has ADD and needs to be tested. While it absolutely could be ADD, it might be something else. Did you know that an anxiety disorder (for instance) can look the same as ADD? So, using the example of the parent calling in: what does the child have – ADD? Anxiety? Both? One exacerbating the other?
That’s the beauty of the thoroughness of a neuropsychological evaluation – we can better pinpoint what something actually is instead of just what it might look like – which makes it a helpful tool for setting up treatment and intervention plans.
