Eastside CHADD: Support and information for families and individuals living with ADHD

Meeting Tuesday, April 18, 2017. 
7 – 9pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Why do We Test Individual Skills and Abilities?

Julie Quamma, Ph.D., Associate Director of the UW Learn Clinic, returns to explain the importance of individual testing to aid in learning, accommodations, and special education.

She will discuss cognitive and educational tests and what they measure. What role do questionnaires play in the diagnosis of ADHD, anxiety, and depression? How do we assess memory, executive function, and processing speed? When should we seek an evaluation?
