ADD/ADHD Screening

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can impact a student’s ability to learn and oftentimes can delay the student’s educational progress.  The ADD/ADHD Screening package includes an evaluation of the student’s cognitive abilities (also known as IQ testing) and ADHD screening measures such as the Attention Deficit Disorder Evaluation Scales to help identify problems in hyperactivity and inattentiveness. Our screenings and observations will determine if a referral to a psychologist, psychiatrist, and/or medical doctor is necessary.


A person with ADHD may display the following symptoms:

  • Doesn’t pay close attention to details
  • Doesn’t seem to listen when spoken to directly
  • Is easily distracted
  • Has difficulty organizing and finishing tasks
  • Fidgets with hands and feet
  • Has difficulty remaining seated
  • Runs about or climbs excessively (seems “motor-driven”)
  • Talks continually
  • Interrupts conversations and intrudes upon other kids’ games
  • Avoids tasks that require sustained mental effort (e.g., school work, homework, games)
  • Does things that are dangerous without thinking of the possible outcome
