SERVICES OFFERED

DIAGNOSTIC-ASSESSMENT services include use of norm-referenced psychological
testing to determine if an individual has been coping with a set of problems (e.g.
ADHD,
 a
learning disability, or psychiatric disorders) that have compromised the person's per-
 formance in school or the workplace.

Another service offered is
medication effectiveness testing for persons with ADHD.
Continuous performance tests (e.g. TOVA, the IVA, the Conners, or the Gordon
Diagnostic System) are used to determine if prescribed medication is "normalizing" the
individual's attention-concentration and response-inhibition skills.  Systematic observation
in
vivo
, also done by Dr. Quesenbery, involves classroom or workplace observation of  the
person's behavior and analyzing the obtained measures to see if the medication is effecting
improvements in classroom or workplace performance.
