The Sachs Center specializes in the testing and treatment of ADD, ADHD & ASD in children, teens, and adults.
We go beyond labels, taking a holistic, person-centered approach to 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 know from experience that one magic pill does not cure ADD, ADHD or other mental health challenges. That is why we offer a holistic behavioral approach that is tailored to the individual and focused on the whole person.
We offer online diagnostic evaluations and therapy, as well as in-person neuropsychological testing. Give us a call for more information. 646-603-0491

The first step in working for change is our initial evaluation. We will meet with you online or in-person to learn more about you or your loved one’s struggles and goals. While we specialize in comprehensive ADD, ADHD 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.
We offer a comprehensive ADD, ADHD test that goes beyond a simple checklist. We use the latest diagnostic tools to accurately assess for ADD, ADHD. This 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 determine deficits in focus, distractibility and impulsivity, all hallmarks of ADD & ADHD. We specialize in ADHD testing for children and ADHD testing for adults. For those that think they may have Aspergers (ASD), we offer an Aspergers Test.
Neuropsychological or psychoeducational testing is not needed for a diagnosis of ADD, 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, Aspergers, 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 symptoms of 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 adults with Aspergers. 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 ADD, ADHD, and ASD are not deficits, but simply differences to be recognized and respected as any other human variation.
