Words for thought “You may have to relax your standards a bit and lower the bar if you typically demand perfection in every area. Excellence is a healthy goal to strive for, not perfection. Perfection is excellence out of balance. We can’t afford to demand perfection of ourselves  - it’s too costly.”

Details of ADHD and psychoeducational testing:

Too often, difficult children are incorrectly labeled with ADHD. On the other hand, many children who do have ADHD remain undiagnosed. In either case, related learning disabilities or mood problems are often missed. The individual should have a clinical evaluation if ADHD is suspected. Testing is also required now by ACT and SAT to take the test with extended time (50% more testing time). This is considered a special accommodation for those formally diagnosed with ADHD or learning disabilities. In order to receive special accommodations in schools and universities and on standardized tests a full psycho-educational assessment is required by someone credentialed to administer tests such as a psychologist in order to document any disability or special need. ADHD evaluations need to be updated every 3-4 years for documentation purposes or they are considered outdated and will not be considered by schools or organizations for special accommodations. Psycho-educational testing can be beneficial for diagnostic clarification and treatment planning including medication and identification of special accommodations needed. See the testing section on this webpage for details of the testing procedure and what to expect.
