Ashburn Psychological and Psychiatric Services provides the most advanced, state of the art assessment and treatment for child, adolescent and adult ADD and ADHD. As a multidisciplinary team, we start with a comprehensive assessment conducted either by one of our highly credentialed psychiatrist’s or psychologist’s. Neuropsychological testing is sometimes warranted for diagnostic clarification inasmuch as ADD and ADHD can look like other conditions and vice versa — anxiety, depression, learning disorders, auditory processing disorder, and other developmental conditions. Diagnostic testing is sometimes required for private or public school placement and instruction.
Treatment is then individualized to the care and needs of the client. Treatment may include medication, cognitive-behavioral therapy, parent consultation and guidance and/or Cogmed Working Memory Training. Some of our clients are adamant that they do not want medication as a component to their treatment or their child’s treatment for ADD or ADHD. Much research has shown outstanding results for ADD and ADHD with evidenced based cognitive behavior therapy alone. Cogmed research studies have also shown impressive results in the treatment of ADD and ADHD.
