Although ADHD is a diagnosis made by clinical observation and behavioral report, current neuroscience research shows us that ADHD is a brain uniqueness that can be assessed with neuropsychological assessment. 

Parents ask, "What type of assessment is most suited to my child?"  "Should I have my child tested by the school psychologist or a neuropsychologist?" "What is the difference in what they do and how they do it?" "What am I to do after I receive the test results?"

We're here for a special 30 minute show today with board certified pediatric neuropsychologist Dr. Paul Beljan, to talk about the variety of methods used by schools and clinicians use to assess IQ and executive function in all children but specifically those with ADHD and/or gifted brains. Today we're answering your real questions on Dr. Lynne Weighs In.
