About DefiniPoint

We believe that technology can help Clinicians to more easily and accurately conduct ADHD assessments and provide better care for clients diagnosed with ADHD. We're committed to translating technology used in everyday life into user-friendly online tools that integrate seamlessly into clinical practice.

We encourage and promote best practice ADHD evaluations. For children, this includes the use of standardized ADHD rating scales to gather behavioral information from parents, teachers, and others in both home and school settings.  Unfortunately, the current system of paper-based rating scales is difficult and unreliable creating an impediment to best practice evaluation. This often results in missing information which leaves the clinician with an incomplete picture of the child's ADHD symptoms. We built DefiniPoint to help clinicians easily and efficiently gather behavioral information from multiple individuals as part of a best practice ADHD evaluation. 

DefiniPoint is used both during the initial ADHD diagnosis and also as part of the continuum of care after a diagnosis has been made.  We believe it is important for parents, teachers, and clinicians to have regular ongoing communication.  DefiniPoint facilitates this communication and enables clinicians to easily gather behavioral information on a routine basis to evaluate treatment outcomes and monitor treatment progress.  Here's a brief video highlighting the use of DefiniPoint to track treatment progress.
