Before any effective treatment can take place, it’s important to get an accurate picture of the problem through comprehensive testing. We offer the latest in evidence-based assessment tools to provide you with a thorough understanding of the challenges you or your loved one are facing. The Sachs Center offers the following assessments.
This evaluation is designed to help us get to know you better, formulate a diagnosiic picture and help plan a path of treatment. We will meet with you for 1.5 hours. At the end of the assessment, we will offer our thoughts on a diagnosis and possible treatment. While we may provide a letter to other physicians or school staff, we do not provide a report for this assessment. We hope that this assessment will give you the “peace of mind” to know what the problems are and how you can get the help you need.
This is our own proprietary method for assessing ADD/ADHD in children, teens and adults. This process takes 2-3 hours and is comprehensive.

Neuropsychological Assessment /Psychoeducational Assessment
Neuropsychological testing is used primarily by students seeking accommodations from schools, school districts or testing boards (see below). This assessment is about 10-12 hours in length and culminates with a 15-20 page report that you can submit to your school or testing board for accommodations. We use the term neuropsychological and psychoeducational interchangeably. Please click on the link to learn more about our neuropsychological /psychoeducational testing.

While there are many competent clinicians in New York City, not all clinicians can accurately diagnose and make clear and specific recommendations…. I highly recommend Dr. Sachs to families who are looking for answers to their child’s educational challenges.
