Services are 180-205$ per hour (details below).

What to expect: The evaluation process usually spreads over a few months. Every step along the way, our clients are learning more about themselves.

Note: Because a full neuropsychological evaluation is a long and detailed process, the relevance of this investment is discussed at the end of the initial 2 hrs consultation.

Adolescents and young students (14+)

Adolescents and students sometimes have a long " student career " in front of them. For that reason, a longer, more throughout evaluation is recommended. A skilled professional should perform evaluations. Total process is usually 10-16 hours over the course of 4-8 weeks. 

Pediatrics and students assessment tend to be more complex : the process is discussed throughout. We always strive for transparency.

  1. Clinical interview. 2 hours. Arrive early to fill out the consent forms and be prepared to fill out questionnaires after our meeting – I am trying to get to know you as best and quick as I can.
  2. Neuropsychological Evaluation, usually 5-6 hours. The length depends on the complexity – duration of the evaluation is hard to predict. Some work faster than others. Some need more detailed evaluation than other. A throughout evaluation is very important to identify precisely what is going on. Because children and young adults are still studying, a full intellectual assessment is essential, along with tests of attention, memory, language, reasoning, etc. We are trying to understand how you process information. Also, academic achievement has to be evaluated. I will also need a copy of the report cards and I like to send questionnaires to the teacher. Its important to get an idea of the person’s functioning in many areas (home, school, work, hobbies, etc).
  3. Scoring all the results, analyze all data, write a report. 5 hours. I look at all the questionnaires, all the tests, all the symptoms you have reported and I try to find patterns, explanations and solutions. Then I prepare a report with all the results and recommendations for home and for school. This may take longer than 5 hours, in complex cases.
  4. Feedback session: the usual 1 hour session. I give you the diagnosis and some recommendations.

NOTE : I recommend at least one follow up session, one month after the diagnosis. To see how its been integrated at home and in school.  Its sometimes hard to make a real change at home and in school : most parents and students need help, even after the diagnosis and recommendation.

If needed, some medication has to be prescribed and controlled by your GP. He is the one who knows best about your physical health. Take an appointment and bring a copy of your report with you.

Adults

Evaluations for adult ADHD are typically shorter. But again, duration may vary. An adult evaluation (clinical + neuropsychological) is often around 10-16 hours over the course of a 4-8 weeks. A more detailed evaluation and/or treatment with cognitive interventions may be needed and you will be informed and involved in planning throughout ! We work together 🙂

  1. Clinical interview. 2 hours. Arrive early to fill out the consent forms and be prepared to fill out questionnaires after our meeting – I am trying to get to know you as best and quick as I can.
  2. Neuropsychological Evaluation. 4 to 6 hours, depending on the needs and the complexity. Tests of attention, memory, language, reasoning, etc.  We are trying to understand how you process information.
  3. Scoring the results and analyzing the file. Creation of a full report = 5 hours of preparation. I look at all the questionnaires, all the tests, all the symptoms you have reported and I try to find patterns, explanations and solutions. Depending on the cases, we may also simply have a verbal report, a 2 pages summary for you, a letter for your Physician or a full report – those are not always recommended but, if appropriate, they may take less time.
  4. Feedback session. 1 hour. I give you my impressions and hypothesis about the Diagnosis, or we talk about the diagnosis.

NOTE : Discussion about the diagnosis can take longer than 1 hour. It is often beneficial for the patient to take the time to integrate all this information. Its also helpful to think about solutions for the problem and start the intervention after the diagnosis. I offer cognitive remediation for adult with ADHD, to improve functioning. This could be used with or without medication. The medication has to be prescribed and controlled by your GP. He is the one who knows best about your physical health.
