Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessments & Evaluations
Dr. Robert Spiro – Boca Raton, FL
We offer comprehensive diagnostic assessments and evaluations consistent with school board standards for children and adolescents who demonstrate behavioral problems compatible with a “diagnosis” of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Evaluations are tailored to address specific referral questions in a manner that is individualized and appropriate to the needs of the client. Evaluations begin with a semi-structured interview and a collection of normative ratings of child, parent, and family functioning. Psychoeducational testing via standardized batteries are utilized. A careful initial evaluation and functional assessment are performed to distinguish whether there are other reasons which may be contributing to the symptoms. (i.e Learning difficulties or anxiety that may distract and interfere with attention.)
