Attention - ADHD, CHILD
Please get in touch with us if you are interested in exploring the process of diagnosis and treatment for child ADHD.
The Conners assessment tool is used to diagnose attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) and some of the most commonly co-occurring problems. It is issued to parents, teachers and the child themselves. It is used for children and adolescents only (6-18 yrs).
The Test of Attentional Performance (TAP) is a software package that is used to examine attention functions and aspects of visual perception in adults and children. The test battery consists of a variety of tests that allow a differentiated look at the various facets of attention. The child being tested will perform a series of tests on a laptop in the clinic. The test consists of a series of visual stimuli that the person being tested responds to. Subtests include alertness, sustained attention, vigilance, visio-spatial attention, and focused attention. The TAP helps establish an appropriately differentiated diagnosis of attention deficits.
The Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function, ver. 2 (BRIEF-2) is a test of executive functioning that can be given to teachers, parents and child. The self-report form is administered to the child or adolescent themselves (ages 11-18), while the teacher and parent forms can be given to children and adolescents ages 5-18. It consists of 3 subscales, the Behaviour Regulation Index (BRI); the Emotion Regulation Index (ERI); and the Cognitive Regulation Index (CRI). It helps us assess attention deficit disorders, including potential underlying and similar problems as well as sub-type of ADHD, from a behavioral point of view.
