Computerized Testing for ADHD

Diagnosing Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults is as easy as a few clicks of the mouse, thanks to technology now available at Texas Tech Physicians of the Permian Basin.

The IVA+Plus is a unique combined auditory and visual, computerized performance test that provides data in order to help psychologists and other clinicians better assess the ADHD symptoms of individuals ages 6 through adult. IVA+Plus provides data that allows for differentiation between the four sub-types of ADHD, Predominantly Inattentive Type (formerly called ADD), ADHD, Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Type, ADHD Combined Type, and ADHD not Otherwise Specified.

“This innovative testing can mimic real-life situations,” says Bobby Jain, M.D., a psychiatrist with Texas Tech Physicians of the Permian Basin. “This technology helps the doctors more accurately diagnosis Attention Deficit Disorder in a patient of any age.”

Recent data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States and 11 percent of school-age children have received a medical diagnosis of ADHD

Testing is $150 and not covered by Health Insurance. The IVA+Plus testing is available at Texas Tech Physicians in Midland, 301 North N Street. For more information or to schedule an appointment,  call (432) 620-5800.
