The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, or ADOS testing, was developed in the 1980s as a tool for autism research. Through a series of semi-structured observations, trained evaluators assess children’s communication skills, social interaction, and imaginative use of materials.

Anyone with a master’s degree in psychology, school counseling, occupational therapy, speech–language therapy, social work, education, special education, or related field. Your primary care provider can screen and refer to a facility that offers this testing. We do not provide ADOS testing.

In young people, ADHD symptoms include difficulty focusing, excessive movement, and impulsive actions. Inattention might show up as trouble completing schoolwork, while hyperactivity may be seen in constant fidgeting and an inability to sit still during class.

Diagnosis involves a detailed evaluation that includes input from parents, teachers, and healthcare professionals. Observations across various settings, like home and school, are crucial to accurately identify ADHD. In addition, testing that objectively measures the core symptoms of ADHD, i.e., impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention, is an important additional assessment tool, providing optimally accurate diagnosis.

Treatment often combines medication with behavioral strategies. Medications can help improve focus, while behavioral interventions aim to help children develop better organizational skills and coping mechanisms.

Yes, structured routines, a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and regular physical activity can support better management of ADHD symptoms in children.

QbTest is a computer-based program that combines a test of attention ability with a movement analysis based on an infrared measurement system. Test results are assembled into a report and compared with data from a control group consisting of people who are the same sex and age as yourself. This way you can see how you react when you concentrate on a task in comparison with people who do not have ADHD.

QbTest is the only test in the world cleared by the FDA for this use, and The Wolff Center is revolutionizing your care by being the only pediatric clinic in NW Florida using this technology.

Assessing ADD/ADHD may be complicated and there is no single clinical tool that can provide all the answers. The QbTest provides objective data that together with other information will help your clinician assess you for ADD/ADHD.

QbTest provides a valuable baseline measurement that can help to evaluate any future changes in your activity, attention and impulsivity. QbTest is the only device cleared by the FDA to monitor how a patient is responding to treatment, which can aid in your clinician’s ability to monitor and track your response over time. Having a tool that can provide such insight into diagnoses and treatment options enables your provider to customize your treatment like never before!

The test equipment consists of an infrared camera, a head-band with an infrared marker attached to it and a responder button.

During the test, several symbols are shown on the computer screen. Your job is to push the responder button when a certain symbol appears on the screen. The test takes roughly 15 minutes to complete and is not dependent on your language, reading or mathematic skills.
