The Conners is a Comprehensive Behavior Rating Scale used to better understand certain behavioral, social, and academic issues in children between 6 and 18 years old. Coastal Ridge Health Services uses this scale to help diagnose attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. The rating scale requires interpretation by a licensed medical professional in conjunction with a clinical interview and other rating scales. For more information, please call our office (910) 821-1418.
In addition to the Conner rating scale, we also employ the completion of psychiatric rating scale instruments, which are symptom checklists which may be completed by patient, family members, employers and teachers.
CNS Vital Signs, a neuropsychological test to evaluate the neurocognitive status and brain function, is an additional tool we use to measure minor motor performance, attention, memory, and executive functions.
A thorough clinical interview is integral to the diagnosis process. After completion, an appointment to go over test results is made to determine if more testing is needed.
