Have any of you been through the process of taking a learning disability test as an adult? What was it like and were you able to get insurance to cover it? I suspect I may have dyscalculia in addition to adhd and could benefit from taking the official test.

I can't speak to dyscalculia, but adhd testing is often administered by a licensed psychologist. You can refer to your health insurance company's mental health benefits to understand what is covered. Fwiw, my child and I both underwent psychological testing for adhd and autism. I was employed under a deloitte health plan with united health insurance. Testing was covered in full and only had a small copay.

Oh wow, ok. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll definitely hop on that since I met my deductible this year.

I just recently completed a full battery of neuropsych testing with an additional focus on autism. I’m 30. This was posted over a month ago so maybe it’s no longer relevant, but I’m happy to share about my experience if you’re still interested.

Yes, absolutely! My doctor made a referral but there were 385 people waitlisted so i won’t be able to get assessed anytime soon 😩
