What is ADHD Testing?

Dr. David Raffle has over three decades of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is an inherited condition in which the frontal lobes of the brain (the parts of the brain right behind the eyes) do not work as efficiently as they should, causing many of the symptoms commonly associated with ADHD, including problems with attention, concentration, and short-term memory.

The goal of ADHD testing is to confirm a DSM-5 diagnosis of ADHD, including whether one has a lack of attention,  hyperactivity, or both. Many of the tests measure executive function, which is our ability to take in all the information we perceive and then act on that information in an efficient and timely manner. Testing also confirms what part of the frontal lobes are affected, which will determine how the type of ADHD affects one’s ability to function in the real world.
