ATEC Autism Scale

While there is a wide range of symptoms for persons in the autistic spectrum, the ATEC Autism Scale is a quick symptom assessment. It is not fool proof and needs to be evaluated by a skilled diagnostician.

Amen Test for ADD

ADD is also a slippery diagnosis. Dr. Daniel Amen has come up with a 101 item questionnaire, that allows the skilled diagnostician to assess what regions of the brain are underfunctioning. This gives us a handle on what kinds of protocols we need for training the brain with Neurofeedback.

VA scale for PTSD

This is the current official  test for PTSD used by the US Departments of Defense and the Veterans Administration. It was updated in 2013.  Scoring has been used for the determination of the rate of disability of a veteran. For active duty personnel a high score may produce a medical discharge and subsequent disability rating.
