Optiminds Can Help with ADHD and Learning Disabilities

April 15, 2013

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that appears in early childhood. It is also known as attention deficit disorder (ADD). Adults also can have ADHD, and up to half of adults diagnosed with the disorder had it as children.

The symptoms of ADHD include inattention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity. Because most children display these traits at some point or another, in order to establish a diagnosis of ADHD, the symptoms should be inappropriate for the child’s age. When ADHD persists into adulthood, symptoms may vary. An adult may experience restlessness instead of hyperactivity, and may have problems with interpersonal relationships and employment.

Optiminds offers ADHD testing and we are certified in administering the IVA+Plus ADHD Test— a combined auditory and visual continuous performance test (CPT). This diagnostic tool helps our staff make an accurate diagnosis of ADHD/ADD in children, adolescents, and adults. The test provides objective data about a person’s ability to concentrate and to avoid making impulsive errors and enables us to diagnose and differentiate between the four sub-types of ADHD/ADD.

In addition, Optiminds offers cognitive training programs that help improve memory processing speed and boost reasoning skills. The program is effective for everyone, but especially people who have ADHD and/or learning disabilities. People who improve their cognitive ability gain enormous benefits in their lives each day. Children, teens, working adults, and retired adults find success.
