Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders Clinic

If you are concerned that your child may have Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), our experienced clinicians can confirm a diagnosis and counsel you on the latest and best treatments for your child.

Parents should recognize that although ADHD is a common childhood condition, symptoms vary greatly and accurately diagnosing the condition is complex. We factor your concerns and observations into a thorough medical and psychiatric evaluation, the first step in diagnosing ADHD.

Many conditions share symptoms of ADHD and affect your child’s behavior, such as sleep disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and learning disabilities. When your child needs additional screenings to rule out another cause of behavioral issues, we coordinate referrals to the necessary specialists for further evaluation, including speech, hearing, and psychological testing.

Our team is skilled in managing the diverse types of ADHD and associated learning disorders. We work with you to develop a care plan most appropriate for your child’s particular needs.
