Psychological testing for rehab programs

The Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) for ADHD is one kind of psychological testing we offer here at South Coast Counseling. A computerized attention test, TOVA helps screen for, diagnose and even treat ADHD and other attention disorders. We believe an accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan are essential aspects in providing appropriate mental health treatment.

Many times, clients have co-occurring disorders, such as attention deficit disorder andaddiction or attention deficit disorderand alcoholism. Adults as well as children and adolescents can suffer from attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Our treatment plans may combine a variety of therapies and may include prescription drugs. As far as testing goes, TOVA is often used by licensed clinicians, nurse clinicians, licensed clinical social workers, psychologists, physicians, pediatricians and other health professionals so they can accurately diagnose and treat various attention disorders.

Attention disorders are not uncommon and can easily be treated. However, it is essential to undergo the proper tests to ensure the diagnosis is accurate as many disorders can have similar symptoms. We strive to ensure we have a thorough understanding of your needs and diagnoses before coming up with a treatment plan.

The screening version of the test is used in non-clinical settings, such as in schools, rehab programs and in human resource departments. We feel as though offering a variety of psychological testing enables us to better confirm diagnoses and help us to better treat our clients and their families.
