Neuropsychological Testing and Diagnosis

We offer a full range of testing to understand all of the issues a patient may face. In the case of ADHD, more than half of patients also have co-existing learning disabilities, concussion, mental health or social perceptual issues that also need treatment for optimal results. We also review a full patient history and interview both the patient and, when appropriate, his/her caregivers. This thoughtful, multi-pronged approach provides a complete picture of a patient’s cognitive health. Other diagnositic assessments are welcomed, such as for memory impairment or cognitive assessment of other neurologically-based disorders.

There can be multiple purposes for a neuropsychological assessment. An assessment can provide diagnostic clarification, fulfill the requirements for educational accomodations for schools and colleges, and can provide needed information for state services. A clear picture of cognitive strengths and weaknesses derived from the assessment can be particulaly helpful to explore potential vocational careers or modification of current positions.

On completion of the evaluation, feedback is provided regarding the diagnosis and implications for educational, vocational and behavioral treatments and a treatment plan is generated. Treatment options at the Hallowell Center might include pharmacological approaches, individual or family counseling, vocational counseling, coaching, complementary therapies or any combination thereof

If prior testing has been previously done, the previous results can be incorporated into a current assessment and an determination made to see if current or additional testing is needed.

Cognitive and Medical Treatment
for ADHD and its Co-Existing Conditions

Sorting through the maze of medical treatments that can aid patients with ADHD can be a complicated process.  Our physicians are experts at helping you find the right medication, should you choose to take one, and then monitoring your progress and growth.  In addition, we provide the counseling necessary to learn the skills and make the life changes so important to the success of those with ADHD.  Because every case of ADHD is unique, you’ll find our expertise both necessary and comforting.

Education and Counseling

Getting a thorough diagnosis is often a relief.  Finally, you have a name for that which has been bothering you!  But the diagnosis is only the beginning.  The next steps include education and, for many patients, counseling.  We will help you learn everything you need to know about your condition so that you can make informed and useful decisions with us about your treatment.  We also offer a wide variety of counseling services that will help you put your life back in order.  This includes teen counseling, marriage therapy, individual counseling, social skills and career counseling.

Life Skills Coaching Services

The Hallowell Center offers one-on-one organizational coaching for people ages 10 and up.  Our coaching expert works with parents to establish front-end interventions for children, teenagers and college students.  Coaching sessions are aimed at designing personalized techniques to address issues such as long-term planning, procrastination, shifting focus, managing multiple demands and time management.  Students will master life skills that will allow them to manage their lives more effectively.
