Together with Dr. Ali, clients will develop an action plan that best fits their individual needs. This collaborative approach ensures that clients’ specific troubles are targeted and that appropriate and efficacious treatment options are explored.
Because there is no single test that detects the presence of ADHD, a comprehensive evaluation is necessary in order to make accurate diagnoses. The ADHD Center of Las Vegas uses a variety of formal, evidence-based psychological assessments to assist in the diagnosis of ADHD. The use of such assessments also provides Dr. Ali the opportunity to rule out alternative diagnoses or possible causes for specific symptoms. Formal psychological evaluations may include continuous performance testing, intelligence testing, achievement testing, executive functioning testing, memory testing, and perception testing.
Once the formal psychological evaluation has been completed, clients will meet with Dr. Ali to thoroughly examine the results and to discuss treatment options.
