Resources on ADHD that we recommend:

If ADHD is a possible diagnosis for your child,

we administer a full battery of tests before

making a diagnosis or initiating treatment.  

Because ADHDis a neurological disorder

present at birth, it affects every area of a

child's life.  Behaviors associated with ADHD

include inattentiveness, impulsivity, 

distractibility, poor judgment, defiance, and

social difficulties.  

However, using behavior as the only basis for making a diagnosis, a very common practice, is an uninformed approach. In children, depression, anxiety, learning disabilities and other conditions can present with the same behaviors as ADHD.  Consequently, in order to make a solid diagnosis, a full battery of psycho-educational tests are administered. Before we put a label on your child, we want to be sure that it is the right label that will lead to the right help.  By the end of this process, a diagnosis of ADHD can be made or eliminated with confidence.  Additionally, since 50% of children with ADHD also have a learning disability, this process will also identify and learning difficulties that are contributing to your child's difficulty.​ Our team of child experts offer comprehensive treatment to address all areas impacted by ADHD, from family to school, behavior modification and social skills, parenting and nutrition.
