Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most common neuropsychiatric disorders in children and adolescents. It can often persist into adulthood. We are highly trained and experienced in diagnosing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We offer a comprehensive, evidence-based consultation for evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD that typically lasts 45-60 minutes.

Diagnosis consists of a history of symptoms, Vanderbilt Questionnaires (Parents, Teachers), impairment at home, school, and socially.
