Behavioral assessments can help target the root cause of undesired behavior. Behavioral issues can go far beyond the classroom. Whether it is attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity or oppositional defiance disorder, these conditions can cause problems in relationships and in daily social interactions.
It is often difficult to gather reliable information from self-reports or reports that are written by others, which is why Horizon Behavioral Health uses the Test of Variables of Attention (T.O.V.A.). T.O.V.A. is an objective test that measures key components of attention, self-control, consistency, response time, impulsivity, and focus. The T.O.V.A. is a reliable method of objectively gathering information to create a more complete picture of an individual’s academic and social behavior.
