Comprehensive Assessment of Neurodevelopmental Disorders

The Portland Anxiety Clinic offers comprehensive assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD and learning disability evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults.

We offer comprehensive assessment for children and adults for learning disorders, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), and diagnostic clarification. Assessment and testing is particularly helpful for children with academic struggles, college students having difficulties keeping up with multiple demands, adults who suspect underlying attentional deficits as they experience more problems coping as life becomes more demanding and complicated, as well as people dealing with a variety of emotional difficulties. Information regarding cognitive abilities (e.g. verbal, spatial, processing speed, and working memory), academic functioning (achievement testing), cognitive impairment (e.g. memory), and objective personality/emotion assessment is provided.

Diagnostic clarification can include assessment for bipolar disorder versus ADHD, anxiety versus depression versus ADHD, high functioning autism spectrum disorder (Asperger’s), factors related to substance use, and problematic personality/character traits.

Recommendations are individualized and inform treatment planning. Reports meet industry standards for test measures, diagnosis, and academic accommodations.

We have a team of professionals including licensed psychologists, testing technicians, therapists, and doctorate students. Assessment involves a clinical interview and cognitive and personality/emotional testing and results in a comprehensive report.
