The Quotient® ADHD System collects data on the person’s ability to sit still, inhibit impulsivity and respond accurately to images on a computer screen. The report provides analysis of motion, attention responses and shifts in attention states. Integrated composite scores report the level and severity of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity compared to other people of the same age and gender. The data is uploaded via a secure internet portal and the report is available within minutes. The clinician integrates the Quotient® ADHD Test report with information from other assessment tools and the clinical evaluation to help guide the discussion on treatment plan.

See the Problem

  • The Quotient ADHD Test may be administered at the initial visit to quantify the severity of neural control deficits related to hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention.
  • Seeing the data helps the parents and patient to accept the diagnosis, promotes alignment and makes the conversation about an individualized treatment plan more efficient and productive.

 

See the Progress

  • Doctors may run a series of Quotient assessments to help inform the treatment plan and help achieve clinical efficacy.
  • The Quotient ADHD Test is used to evaluate progress toward goals.

Professional Guidelines

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends systematic monitoring of dosage and side effects.1
  • Medication Initiation: The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists (AACAP) recommends an office visit in the first 30 days to monitor medication tolerance, side effects and progress.2
  • Continuation and Maintenance Phase: AACAP recommends office visits at least monthly until symptoms have been stabilized.
  • AACAP guidelines state, “The patient with ADHD should have regular follow-up for medication adjustments to ensure that the medication is still effective, the dose is optimal and the side effects are clinically insignificant.”
