WHEN AN ASSESSMENT IS NEEDED

Maybe you/your child simply can't finish work on time. Makes lots of mistakes. Struggles with prioritizing and organization. Seems spaced out. Has trouble staying in control of their body. Or is impulsive or overly emotional. These all can be signs of "executive dysfunction," some of the problems at the root of ADD/ADHD. An assessment may be needed to confidently identify the true problem.

WHAT GOES INTO AN ASSESSMENT

Session 1.) Dr. Gerdin takes the time to hear your story and gets to know your true concerns in a 1 & 1/2 hour interview session.                Session 2.) Dr. Gerdin may want to review important medical and school documents to get a broader picture. He may also meet with you for additional neuropsychological testing to investigate your cognitive strengths and weaknesses, learn more about your symptoms, and hear how these things fit into your life and personality.                                                                                                Session 3.) Dr. Gerdin would meet with you to discuss the results and give you individualized recommendations and/or needed accomodations. This information would be also given to you in a written report.
