Qb Test is an FDA cleared advanced computer-based test that objectively measures core ADHD symptoms including activity, attention, and impulsivity. While standardized tests and parent/teacher surveys are an important piece of the evaluation process, there are many reasons why an individual may show signs of inattention. Qb Test allows us to gather objective data on an individual’s levels of:
- Inattention – the extent to which someone can remain focused on a task
- Hyperactivity – the amount of movement, like tapping foot, bouncing leg, fidgeting
- Impulsivity – lack of impulse control, like interrupting other when talking, or blurting out answers in class
Qb Test is performed in front of a computer screen and is intentionally a very boring task that requires focus and attention. Activity is measured using an infrared sensor and a headband. The sensor tracks the movement of the headband during the 15-20 minute test. The results show the examinee’s performance and compares them against a norm group of other individuals of the same sex and age who do not have ADHD.
Qb Test can be administered in the office or virtually using a computer with a built in video camera. Qb Test is also designed and FDA approved for treatment evaluation. It allows you to see clearly whether your specific treatment plan is helping to improve symptoms.
