Do you think you might need Adult ADHD testing? Feeling overwhelmed by life? Facing consistent problems at work? Are you constantly late for projects and turning in assignments past the deadline? Can’t seem to get up and go? If you relate to the majority of these situations, you may be living with adult ADHD and should consider our comprehensive adult ADHD testing.

Know With Confidence If You Have Adult ADHD

You could take an online quiz and guess if you have ADHD. You could have your family doctor read you ten symptom questions and hand you pills. Or you go to a very busy psychiatrist. The doctor spends ten minutes with you and says: “I think you have ADD.”

This busy doctor prescribes you medication. You take the medication for a few months and then discontinues it due to side effects. Deep down, you're frustrated and not sure if you really have ADHD. Years and months pass, but the problems persist.

Instead of this frustrating process, why not get tested at the Sachs Center? Where our doctors are experts in ADHD and Autism and many are neurodivergent themselves.

At the conclusion of the testing, you will know for sure if you have ADHD or not. At the Sachs Center, we offer holistic support for adults facing the challenges of ADD or ADHD. If you’re overwhelmed by daily tasks or find it difficult to stay organized and focused, you’re not alone. Many people like you experience these struggles, often without realizing they have ADHD.

ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) isn’t just a condition that affects children; it persists into adulthood. Adult ADHD can affect your job, personal relationships, and everything in between. An estimated 4.4% of adults in the US have ADHD.

The sooner you notice the signs of ADHD and seek proper evaluation, the sooner you can take back control of your life.

Which ADHD Testing Option Is Right For Me?

When considering ADHD testing at the Sachs Center, you have two primary options: an 8-hour neuropsychological evaluation—which involves a very extensive series of tests—and a comprehensive 2-hour test specifically designed for ADHD. Both are offered at the Sachs Center.

Neuropsychological Evaluations For ADHD Testing

Conducted by a licensed psychologist specializing in ADHD, this evaluation can last up to 8 hours, with an extra 10 to 20 hours required to write the report. This evaluation is necessary (and often mandatory) to receive extended-time accommodations for standardized tests like the LSAT, MCAT, SAT, etc., or to receive accommodations at a college or university. Given its comprehensive approach, this option can exceed $6,000 in cost. This testing involves cognitive testing (IQ), academic testing, memory, emotional, and executive functioning (ADHD) tests. However, it is not necessary if you are simply interested to know if you have ADHD or if you would like accommodations in the workplace. 

2 Hour Diagnostic ADHD Testing

For most people, the best ADHD testing option is a shorter assessment that specifically targets ADD and ADHD. At the Sachs Center, we use a proprietary method that focuses on ADHD-specific tests taken directly from the longer neuropsychological evaluation. All our tests are scientifically valid and created by top ADHD doctors like Russell Barkley Ph.D and Thomas Brown Ph.D. This diagnostic ADHD testing provides one of the most thorough ADHD assessments available. We also will evaluate you for anxiety and depression. In just two hours, you can get an accurate ADHD diagnosis at a much more affordable price. At the end of this testing, you will receive a letter that indicates a diagnosis of ADHD if you meet the criteria. You can use this letter to seek accommodations at work or to receive medication from another provider.

What To Expect During An ADHD Assessment


Diagnosing ADHD in adult clients can be a complex process, as adult ADHDers often learn to mask their symptoms over time. This is especially true for women. ADHD symptoms can also overlap with other disorders, so it’s important to rule out other diagnoses by screening for mood disorders or thyroid/seizure disorders, as these conditions often mimic ADHD. We also recommend involving partners, family, and friends before your evaluation. While this is not necessary, it is helpful. You can have a loved one fill out a questionnaire if you wish.

The psychologists at the Sachs Center strive to make the ADHD testing process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Here’s what you can expect during your evaluation:

1. Clinical Interview

You will meet with your psychologist online via Zoom or Google Meet. During the first 30 minutes, we discuss your current challenges, childhood experiences, school and work history, medical background, and family dynamics. Our ADHD doctors go beyond a simple checklist. We explore past and present ADHD signs, emotional regulation, academic and work performance, and personal and family psychiatric history.

2. Considering ADHD Diagnostic Criteria

There’s no single test for ADHD, but specific criteria help guide diagnosis. To diagnose ADHD, certain criteria must be met, including:

  • ADD/ADHD symptoms experienced in multiple settings
  • Symptoms interfere with social, academic, or occupational functioning

We’ll assess for a combination of inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms, ruling out other potential causes.

3. Self-Report ADHD Questionnaires

Following the initial interview, we’ll administer evidence-based self-report tests online to assess impulsivity, executive functioning, distractibility, attention, and focus. You’ll have a short break while we “crunch the numbers”, combining technology with our years of clinical experience and expertise.

4. ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment Discussion

After completing the above steps, we’ll discuss our findings with you, sharing our expert insights gathered from your questionnaire and overall assessment. This is when you’ll officially receive your ADHD diagnosis if your test results indicate as such.

We understand that receiving an ADHD diagnosis can be overwhelming, so we take the time to answer your questions and explain our holistic approach to treatment. Your clinician will then discuss treatment options with you, which will be tailored to your needs. Multimodal treatment for ADHD can include psychoeducation, individual therapy, and medication if necessary.

Why Choose The Sachs Center For An ADHD Diagnosis?

If you make an appointment with the Sachs Center for ADHD testing, you can move forward with confidence, knowing for sure if ADHD is causing your daily challenges. We promise a comprehensive evaluation for Adult ADHD that is provided by a licensed psychologist. Other clinics in NYC do not offer you a psychologist but rather a social worker. Psychologists are specifically trained in the testing of mental health challenges. Social workers are not.

We understand the frustrations of previous evaluations that may have left you feeling uncertain or misunderstood. That’s why we prioritize a holistic approach, combining clinical expertise with empathy, understanding, and first-hand experience with being a neurodivergent adult. Our goal isn’t just to provide an ADHD diagnosis, but to empower you with the knowledge and resources needed to navigate life with ADHD successfully.
