In addition to clinical psychiatric assessments, we use a variety of objective tests to validate diagnosis and recommend treatment.
Adult ADHD is a manageable but underrecognized condition. Assessment of ADHD usually involves a detailed clinical interview and obtaining collateral information from family members or school records. In addition, we also use a computerized continuous performance test, which is an objective tool to evaluate a patient’s attentiveness profile.
QEEG has also been recognized by the US FDA in 2013 in diagnosing ADHD and is valuable in determining the most appropriate medication. Neurofeedback is also offered either as an adjunct or an alternative to medications.
Autism Spectrum Disorder:
Although most people with Autism Spectrum Disorder are diagnosed in childhood, a significant number of adults remain undiagnosed. Assessment of ASD usually involves screening questionnaires and a detailed clinical interview, in addition to collateral information. We also use objective tests to improve diagnostic accuracy. The QEEG can also been used as part of the diagnostic process and in determining treatment.
