optimized ADHDAt Alma Behavioral Group we use the latest technology that allows us to provide the most effective and efficient ADHD Treatment. Our psychiatric professionals are qualified to use the innovative Quotient® System

Objective ADHD Test

The Quotient® System is the only neural assessment tool that objectively measures micro-motion and analyzes shifts in attention state. The Quotient ADHD Test provides quantitative data on the brain functions associated with hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention.

The Quotient® ADHD Test quantifies the severity of deficits related to hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. Parents and patients can see the problem. With everyone on the same page, the conversation about next steps is more productive and efficient.

About the Quotient System

The Quotient® ADHD System has a Motion Tracking System, proprietary software and connection to the Quotient database through a secure web portal. The Motion Tracking System measures head movements while the patient attempts to focus on changing stars on the computer screen. The test itself takes 15 or 20 minutes, depending on age. Setup prior to testing, data upload and report download take 10-15 minutes. The clinician integrates Quotient data with clinical exam, rating scales and other data to create a treatment plan.

About the Quotient ADHD Test

The test administrator enters demographic data, explains the test and executes at least 1 practice test. The raw data is submitted electronically to the Quotient server. The report is available within about 45 minutes, the clinician can present a treatment plan to the patient/parent.

The Quotient® ADHD System collects and reports objective, accurate data on hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. The clinician integrates the Quotient ADHD Test report with information from other assessment tools and the clinical evaluation to guide treatment decisions. ADHD historically has been challenging to diagnose because many of the assessment tools rely largely on subjective information from parents and teachers, in addition to clinical evaluation. The Quotient ADHD System accurately measures motion and analyzes shifts in attention state and reports quantitative data related to the core symptom domains of ADHD:

  • Hyperactivity (the inability to control movement and sit still while working)
  • Impulsivity (the inability to inhibit inappropriate responses)
