The Pedia IQ Screening is comprised of a mental health screening, learning disability screening, and ADHD screening. The assessment is completed on site in the physician's office and interpreted by a psychologist who sends the report directly to the physician.
Mental Health and Learning Disability Screenings
Mental health screenings are an important part of diagnosing ADHD and learning disabilities. Pedia IQ evaluations include an analysis of emotional and behavioral concerns. Mental health screening allows for documentation when treating mental health disorders, including depression and anxiety.
Learning disability screenings are comprised of intellectual ability and academic achievement measurements. Screenings help determine whether comprehensive testing is warranted.
An objective, standardized measurement of sustained attention is performed when ADHD is suspected. Attention tests allow physicians to compare a child's behavior relative to normative data.
