A full psychoeducational evaluation is not always needed. Check with your school. Check with the testing board. An ADHD screening may be sufficient. Find out, and then call for an appointment.
ADHD screenings are available for children, adolescents, and adults.
Benefits of Testing
After the feedback session, Dr. Bike's clients often remark that they have a deeper understanding of their child or of themselves. Things that seemed random fall into place. "That really hits home! You get it."
Testing, done well, can put together 'puzzle pieces' that have long been jumbled. Testing, done right, can provide a clear picture. From there, you can make a workable plan to move forward.

Payment and Fees
Baltimore Minds is a fee-for-service practice. You pay at the time of services. (Cash, check, or credit card.) A payment record (called a "superbill") is provided after payment clears. CPT codes appear on the bill. These are medical codes used by the insurance company. You can submit out-of-network claims using the superbill. Please consult your carrier before initiating testing to find out your benefits and the potential for reimbursement.
Turn-around time for your written report:
• Standard turnaround is three weeks. This begins the date full payment clears and collateral data is received. That data includes records and teacher, parent, or partner interviews.
• Rush delivery is one week. This begins the date full payment clears and collateral data is received. Add $250 for rush.
Half of the balance is due by your first appointment.
This starts the testing.
The remaining balance is due in full before scoring and report writing begin.
