Frequently Asked Questions about Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Learning Disability (LD) Evaluations
What is involved in testing for LD?
LD evaluations require a battery of tests that assess both cognitive abilities and scholastic achievement. In addition, other tests may be administered as needed.The battery of tests varies from person-to-person, but frequently includes the following:
- intake interview (20-30 minutes)
- cognitive ability & achievement battery (4 hours)
- measure of cognitive ability (2 hours)
- in-depth interview (1-2 hours)
How long will an ADHD or LD evaluation take?
The length of time varies from person-to-person, in part depending on scheduling. The full evaluation can take up to 10 hours, but the appointments might take place over several weeks.
Who finds out about the evaluation?
All evaluations are confidential. Results of the testing are only released with the written consent of the client. With the client’s written consent, the testing provider is able to release information about testing to doctors, mental health professionals, and the Office of Disability Services. Reports on testing will not be released to students or non-professionals.
I’ve heard that I’ll need documentation in order to receive accommodations in my classes. How do I get this?
With a release, your testing provider is able to send a report documenting the results of your evaluation to the Office of Disability Services. Documentation will not be provided unless you have completed all of the necessary testing.
If I’m interested in testing for ADHD, when should I start the process?
You should begin the process as soon as possible because it often requires several weeks to complete the evaluation. We have a list of community providers who can provide this service.
What does this cost?
The prices for LD/ADHD testing vary with the providers. Please call the UCTC at 541-346-3227 to find out about current referral contacts.
