    What is a normal amount of hours for psych testing for ADD or ADHD? 4 hours, 5 hours, 6 hours, 7 hours etc..?

    I'd say there probably isn't one. The number of tests, type of tests administered, the amount of time it took the patient to complete those tests and the detail of the reporting all vary greatly. I've also seen evidence that the severity of the ailment plays at least some factor (e.g., a perfectly normal test is generally less burdensome to score than one that is vastly abnormal).

    What are your concerns with these? Generally "hours" is about all one could say about them.
