QbTest: Testing For ADHD
QbTest is testing for ADHD using a computer-based test that measures the core symptoms associated with ADHD. The test is the widest FDA cleared test. The QBTest measures hyperactivity, impulsivity, inattention, and distractibility. Test results compare your results with a non-ADHD group of people of the same age and gender. You get a comprehensive report that details the findings.
QBTest Testing for ADHD In Houston? At our Houston office, we offer the QBTest. This test will assess attention ability using a movement analysis based on an infrared measurement system. Test results are compiled into a report which compares your score with data from other people of the same sex and age. This type of analysis is helpful because it allows you to see how you react when you concentrate on a task in comparison with people who do not have ADHD.
Ways the QBTest can be used
Assessing ADHD can sometimes be complicated. There is no single clinical tool that will give you all the answers. The QbTest provides objective data that together with a clinical interview and other information will help our staff assess you for ADHD.
QbTest also provides an essential baseline measurement that will help the staff at Midtown Psychiatry to evaluate any future changes in activity, attention and impulsivity so we can assess the effectiveness of treatment.
How is a QbTest performed?
The test is performed in our Houston office in front of a computer screen. The equipment we use consists of an infrared camera, a headband with an infrared marker attached to it and a responder button. During the test, a number of symbols are shown on the computer screen. The task is to push the responder button when a certain symbol appears on the screen. The test takes 15 minutes to complete and is not dependent on your language, reading or mathematics skills.
