Our Specialized ADHD Assessment Services

For many clients, the first step is to obtain an accurate diagnosis of ADHD, as well as an understanding of any other difficulties that may be an obstacle to your success.  Our comprehensive assessments provide a clear understanding of ADHD and related challenges. We tailor our evaluations to the individual’s age and needs, ensuring accurate diagnosis and personalized recommendations.  Here are some of the factors we consider in the evaluation process:

  • Comprehensive ADHD Assessment: Our assessments look beyond the standard criteria to consider all aspects of ADHD, including inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, and executive functioning. We also check for common co-occurring conditions like anxiety, depression, and learning disabilities, tailoring our approach to each individual’s age, gender, and circumstances.
  • Neurodiversity Assessment: We can also assess for various neurodivergent conditions, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), dyslexia, dyspraxia, and sensory processing differences. By understanding how these conditions affect daily life, we provide comprehensive support tailored to each individual’s needs and goals.
  • Learning difficulties:  Many individuals with ADHD also face co-occurring learning disorders, which can further complicate their educational and daily experiences. Learning disorders such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia often coexist with ADHD, creating a unique set of challenges that require a nuanced and comprehensive approach to assessment and intervention.
  • Executive Functioning Evaluation: Executive functioning involves cognitive processes that help us plan, organize, and execute tasks. Our evaluations identify strengths and areas needing improvement in working memory, cognitive flexibility, and inhibitory control. Through targeted interventions, we help individuals enhance these skills for greater success in daily life.
  • Gender and Age-Specific Assessment: We know that ADHD can present differently based on gender and age. For example, females might show more internalizing symptoms like emotional dysregulation, while males might display more hyperactivity and impulsivity. Our assessments consider these differences to provide personalized, culturally sensitive care.
  • Common Co-occurring Disorders: ADHD often co-occurs with other mental health conditions such as anxiety, mood disorders, and substance use disorders. Our assessments thoroughly evaluate these conditions to develop treatment plans that address all of an individual’s needs.

Therapy Support for ADHD Across the Lifespan

People with ADHD need tailored therapeutic approaches to meet their unique needs. Our experienced therapists use various evidence-based techniques to support individuals of all ages in managing their symptoms and thriving in life. Our personalized treatment plans integrate therapy, skill-building exercises, and ongoing support to foster growth and success throughout life:

  • Child & Adolescent Therapy: We offer a safe, supportive environment for children and teens with ADHD. Our therapists use evidence-based approaches like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, and social skills training to support their growth and development.
  • Adult Counseling: Adults with ADHD often face challenges in managing careers, relationships, and daily responsibilities. Our counseling services help improve self-awareness, develop coping strategies, and build a foundation for success in all aspects of life.
  • ADHD in Couples: ADHD can significantly impact relationships, leading to communication breakdowns and conflicts. Our therapists provide specialized therapy for couples, helping them understand, communicate, and support each other effectively.
  • ADHD in Athletes:  Athletes with ADHD face unique challenges both on and off the field. The high-energy environment of sports can sometimes help channel ADHD symptoms, yet the demands of training, focus, and discipline can also present significant hurdles. We understand these specific needs and provide tailored therapy and support to help athletes succeed.
  • Parental Guidance for ADHD: Parenting a child with ADHD can be challenging. We offer tools and strategies to help parents support their children effectively, covering topics like behavior management, structured routines, and positive parent-child relationships.
  • Executive Functioning Skill Development: Our programs target executive functioning deficits, enhancing skills like time management, organization, planning, and emotional regulation. We work closely with clients to develop strategies that work for them.

Therapy Approaches We Use

At Konick and Associates, we tailor our therapy approaches to meet each client’s unique needs and preferences. By combining evidence-based techniques with personalized care, we empower individuals with ADHD to reach their full potential and thrive in all aspects of their lives. Some of the approaches we use for ADHD treatment include:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is effective for treating ADHD symptoms, especially in adults and teens. It helps identify and challenge negative thought patterns and behaviors, teaching practical strategies to improve executive functioning, emotional regulation, and problem-solving.
  • Behavioral Therapy: Techniques like positive reinforcement and token economies are beneficial for children with ADHD. By reinforcing desired behaviors and providing consistent consequences for undesired behaviors, children develop self-control and improve focus.
  • Mindfulness-Based Interventions: Techniques like mindfulness meditation and deep breathing help individuals with ADHD improve attention, reduce impulsivity, and manage stress. These interventions teach awareness of thoughts and emotions without judgment.
  • Coaching and Skill-Building: These sessions teach practical strategies to manage daily tasks and responsibilities, including organizational skills, time management, and goal-setting, tailored to the individual’s strengths and challenges.
  • Supportive Counseling: This provides a safe space to explore thoughts and emotions related to ADHD, developing coping strategies, improving self-esteem, and understanding strengths and abilities.
