Our services for ADHD include a thorough case history interview, and evaluation of working memory, verbal fluency and auditory attention and processing. We formulate a treatment plan to strengthen deficit areas based on results of the initial assessment. We not only train strategies to accomodate for ADHD, but also work to strengthen skills sets through exercises in session, and through a home program.
