Achievement & Wellness Center uses state-of-the-art diagnostic measures to accurately and effectively assessing the propriety and/or progress of our treatments.
Psychoeducational evaluations are tests to measure ability, achievement and processing skills (e.g., visual motor functioning). These modalities are also used to assess behavioral, emotional and functional skill levels, which serve as our basis in making school or work recommendations.
Neuropsychological evaluations are used to gauge neuropsychological abilities such as spatial and verbal reasoning, executive and visual motor functioning, emotional and psychological skills, language fluency and memory skills.
Quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a remarkable system used to analyze brain wave activity in predetermined regions of the brain. The data collected in each area of the brain is compared for statistical analysis to that of brain activities of individuals of similar age. The results obtained are useful in creating specifically designed neurofeedback treatment to produce desirable results more efficiently.
Brain maps are the result of an assessment for brain wave amplitudes in various cortical regions. The information is gathered for comparative purposes and to devise individualized treatment plans.
Continuous performance tests are assessment tests conducted on a computer to measure a person’s attention and concentration levels. These exams usually take about 14 to 28 minutes. As a performance evaluation modality, these exams assess the person’s response speed and accuracy. The results are matched to a database for individuals with ADD, ADHD and other neurological conditions.
Neurological screening tests measure neurological functioning through a series of questions that gauge visual and verbal memory, sensory motor functioning, vigilance, verbal fluency, information processing and executive functioning.
Checklists and questionnaires consist of behavioral observation reports and checklists that are used to determine the need for treatment and/or assess the progress.
