Dr. Falkstein has a lot of expertise in the area of ADHD evaluation and treatment. He has been conducting ADHD evaluations and has worked with children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD for over 20 years. Dr. Falkstein's ADHD evaluations are very thorough and include: examination of the individual's current symptoms (obtained from parent/significant other, teacher, and self-report ratings on multiple questionnaires), clinical observation, intelligence testing, memory testing, formal attentional testing, academic testing (for children, adolescents, and college students), and assessment of emotional and behavioral functioning. Recommendations about need and appropriateness of medication, non-medication treatment options, parenting/discipline/management of problem behaviors, and school intervention/supports are offered.

In addition to traditional therapy services for children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD, David L. Falkstein, Ph.D. and Associates offers Cogmed working memory training for all age groups (children, adolescents, and adults). 


Cogmed working memory training ( is an evidence-based program that helps people with attention problems by training and increasing their working memory capacity. Clinically proven results demonstrate that after training, people improve their ability to concentrate, control impulsive behavior and better utilize complex reasoning skills.
