The Sachs Center for ADHD & Autism Testing and Treatment is here to help you.
We specialize in ADHD & Autism (ASD) testing and treatment in children, teens, and adults.
We go beyond labels, taking a holistic, person-centered approach to ADHD & Autism (ASD) testing and treatment. We don’t see you or your loved one as a diagnosis or set of symptoms, but rather as an individual with unique strengths and weaknesses.
We believe that being neurodivergent does not mean you are disordered or need to be fixed. While both Autism (ASD) and ADHD come with challenges, we see neurodiversity as a benefit to society and the individual. A diagnosis of ADHD or Autism (ASD) is simply an opportunity to build self-awareness and continue the lifelong process of personal growth.
We offer telehealth online diagnostic ADHD & Autism (ASD) testing, coaching, and therapy, as well as in-person neuropsychological testing.

Telehealth Diagnostic Evaluation
The first step in working for change is our two-hour diagnostic evaluation. We will meet with you online to learn more about you or your loved one’s struggles and goals. While we specialize in comprehensive ADD, ADHD & Autism (ASD) testing for children, teens and adults, we also will evaluate for Depression, Anxiety, and other mental health challenges. At the conclusion of the evaluation, we will discuss our findings and the recommended options for treatment. Note: All our 2-hour diagnostic evaluations are online via Zoom.
The two-hour diagnostic evaluation for Autism, ADD, and ADHD goes beyond a simple checklist. We use the latest diagnostic tools to accurately test for ADHD and ASD. This ADHD & Autism (ASD) testing process begins with a clinical interview, where we learn about early childhood symptoms and the current challenges that are negatively impacting your life. After the interview, you will be given a computer-based assessment to further fine-tune our diagnostic impression. We are specialists in Autism and ADHD and have a wealth of experience in ASD and ADHD.
Neuropsychological or psychoeducational testing is not needed for a diagnosis of ASD or ADHD. It is necessary, however, to receive accommodations in school or extra time on a standardized test. We have been successful in getting extra time accommodations for our clients on the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, etc. Neuropsychological testing can also be helpful in determining if your child has a learning disorder. We offer weekend hours for busy students and their families.
Therapy & Coaching
We offer individual, group, and family therapy for children, teens, and adults in need of support for ADD, ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, Depression, school, career, and relationship issues. Dr. Sachs has developed a unique method for ADD, ADHD treatment based on his book, The Adult ADD Solution, called the “Sachs Protocol,” utilizing CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and psychoeducation to manage ADD, ADHD in adults. Our child psychologists use CBT and the group model (Dragon Masters) to assist children with their unique behavioral and emotional needs.
We offer a range of online and in-person neurotribes or support groups for adults. Currently, we have online neurotribes for adults with ADHD and autistic adults. The groups offer support, accountability and psychoeducational experiences. We also have a parenting support group that meets online once a week.
We have neurotribes for children too! Our popular online and in-person social skills groups are run by child psychologists to help children and adolescents who are having difficulty with peer relationships, anxiety, depression and ADHD. Online groups allow children to interact in a private Minecraft realm. Children and adolescents will gain greater acceptance, make friends, strengthen their communication skills, behave more appropriately, reduce anxiety, increase their frustration tolerance, and develop more confidence so they succeed socially.
Why Choose Us
While we are holistic in our therapeutic approach, we offer well-researched, client-tested, proven treatment methods to help you or your loved ones.
We believe that ADHD and ASD are not deficits, but simply differences to be recognized and respected as any other human variation.
