Psychological Testing at CAPS
Many factors can influence your attention, concentration, academic performance, and social life at Purdue. CAPS offers psychological testing services that help you determine which factors are most relevant for understanding your current concerns. In particular, we offer formalized testing that not only assesses for the presence of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning Disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, but also considers how various lifestyle and psychological factors may be contributing to your current difficulties.
Testing is provided by a small team of psychologists and psychologists-in-training with specialized training and experience in psychological testing. This team coordinates with various offices and providers across campus (including the Disability Resource Center, the Office of the Dean of Students, PUSH medical providers, CAPS therapists, and CAPS psychiatrists), as appropriate and only with the signed consent of the student for those outside of CAPS.
Testing typically involves multiple appointments and may involve fees, depending on the specific services needed and your financial situation.
There are specific requirements for the Medication Management of ADHD.
