When evaluating a child for ADHD, LCTEA uses a variety of assessment tools to gather information. Parents and educators are asked to complete various forms, including checklists, behavior questionnaires, or rating scales. These tools are an essential component of a comprehensive evaluation for ADHD.

This multidimensional diagnostic evaluation captures the impact on home, school and social functioning. The assessment may include the following:

  • parent and child interviews

  • a bio-psycho-social assessment interview including family history

  • parent- and teacher-completed child behavior rating scales

  • parent self-report measures

  • direct behavioral observations of the child in clinical settings

  • review of prior school and medical records

  • computer-based test

After completing the diagnostic evaluation, a treatment plan and report is developed with treatment recommendations and/or referral for additional evaluations.
