GETTING AN ADD/ADHD AFFORDABLE DIAGNOSIS
Confirming a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD is not an easy task. Often parents have raised concerns about a child’s inability to focus, or perhaps a school teacher or counselor reports disruptive or impulsive behavior. Symptoms of ADD/ADHD can overlap with many other conditions. Most diagnoses of ADD/ADHD are based on symptoms alone with the question of potential treatments limited to experimentation with medications of attention such as Ritalin, Adderall, or Vyvanse. Many parents are concerned about putting their children on such medications, particularly when doctors are unsure of the diagnosis until they observe a response or lack thereof to the treatment. Meanwhile, most adults with ADD/ADHD may suffer from difficulty in staying employed or being effective or managing their time well while at work. The cost of evaluation for both tests, along with a follow-up discussion of results, is $500. Both brain mapping and QbCheck have been cleared by the FDA as tools for evaluation, and as such may be covered by insurance and at your request will be submitted to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
