Why Testing for Adult ADHD is Vital to Your Success and Happiness

The Washington, DC Center for Neurocognitive Excellence Approach to ADHD Testing for Adults
Our test is very straightforward.
We will spend about 2 hours with you.
You will complete a number of questionnaires.
We will have a long conversation with you about how symptoms have affected your school, work, and relationships. You will be asked to have someone else complete a questionnaire for you. And you will be given a computer-based test. This is so that we get more objective information.
Our test is reasonably priced.
Other practices charge thousands of dollars. Ours is less than a thousand dollars. We can do this because more than 10 years ago we pioneered an ADHD-focused test. We’ve been making it better and better ever since.
The Test is fast.
Other practices make you wait months for an appointment. We can almost always get you in next week. We can do this because we have done it for over a decade. The Staff at DCNE is cross-trained to diagnose and treat ADHD.
What You Get After Your Adult ADHD Test
After your test, you will get a formal written report. This report will be exactly what you need to focus on in counseling techniques that will help you. This will help your prescriber provide medication, should you want that. It is the full package for your next step.
In most cases, it will also help you get accommodations at work, in school, or on standardized tests. Let us know if you’re seeking accommodations during your free consultation. We can make this test exactly what you need. We do this all the time.
Your report will include everything we did. Transparency should be your expectation in mental health.
Your report includes recommendations. You can hit the ground running right away. Working on your recommendations on your own is what we call “over-the-counter” ADHD counseling. Working with us in counseling is “prescription strength.”
