Dr. Zelig | Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder

Dr. Zelig has extensive experience evaluating and treating children and adults who suffer from Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  He provides testing and other diagnostic services to help the client verify the diagnosis.  Indeed, there are other psychological, medical, or life situations may cause or worsen distractibility, hyperactivity, or the concentration impairments commonly associated with ADHD. Sometimes people have been incorrectly diagnosed, which is a major reason that prior treatment efforts may have been disappointing.

If the evaluation indicates a reasonable probability of the disorder, Dr. Zelig typically coordinates a treatment plan with the client’s physician.  Despite the general effectiveness of medication, there are alternative treatments and lifestyle changes that may remove the need for medication in some clients, and decrease the reliance upon medication in others.

The psychological testing that he typically administers to clients suspected of having ADHD may be helpful for three reasons: (1) Testing may confirm or suggest consideration of an alternative diagnosis. (2) Testing often provides information about a client’s strengths and untapped talents that may have been unknown prior to the evaluation, and (3) If testing supports a diagnosis of ADHD or other qualifying disorder, it provides helpful documentation when a client seeks accommodation or other appropriate consideration in educational or occupational settings.  Such documentation also helps support petitions for accommodation to those considering taking tests such as the MCAT, LSAT, GMAT, or GRE.
