Attēmo objectively helps to take the guess work out of identifying attentional and behavioral disorders so that the practitioner can focus on developing and implementing a treatment plan. A downloadable app administered on an iPad, it assesses key neurobehavioral parameters related to brain function in attentional and behavioral disorders. Attēmo is accurate and reliable, providing objective, quantifiable data to inform decision making.
Current ADHD Assessment Tools
Traditionally, ADHD diagnoses have been based on interviews with parents, relatives, teachers and/or the student, and are often combined with questionnaires, rating scales or Continuous Performance Tests (CPTs). However, the clinical presentation of ADHD is variable, the symptoms are situational, and the degree to which a patient exhibits them may be observed and interpreted differently by various observers.1
Attēmo Compared to Traditional CPTs
Attēmo surpasses the value of traditional CPTs by looking at neurobehavioral issues beyond average attention. It also evaluates impulsivity, motor efficiency and ability to inhibit a response, as well as looking at sustained attention dynamically as it fluctuates during the course of the evaluation. In contrast to standard rating scales, Attēmo quantitatively measures direct observation of key behaviors rather than relying on the potential subjectivity or bias that may be evident in third party reporting.
