What is “Continuous Performance Testing” (CPT)?
Specialized computer testing programs are now available to assess attention, concentration, and impulsivity. Research

Following each 30-minute test, a preliminary score is generated, determining the presence and severity of inattentiveness and impulsivity. Researchers now say that, without CPT, ADHD-treatment is not up-to-date. There are a few dierent CPT programs, and Portrait Health Centers uses the program with the most research behind it.

Continuous Performance Testing (CPT) is a specialized interactive computer program used to assess attention, concentration, and impulsivity. Following each 30-minute test, a preliminary score is immediately generated, determining the presence and severity of inattentiveness and impulsivity. Dr. Jack Maggiore, Chief Healthcare Officer of Portrait Health Centers explains, “Prior to the availability of CPT, clinicians relied solely upon behavior rating scales and subjective observations to assist in the diagnosis of ADHD. Portrait Health Centers uses the CPT system with the most research supporting its effectiveness.”
