ADD and ADHD Clinic

We take a comprehensive approach to assessing children and adults that may have ADD/ADHD. While checklists can be helpful, we know that other problems can create similar symptoms. For any person concerned about ADD problems, we assess all the components associated with ADHD as well as other processing disorders (i.e., learning disorders) and emotional components (i.e. anger, depression, etc.) We find that one or a combination of problems can help explain the causes of the presenting concerns. Girls and boys show different symptoms, and frequently girls are misdiagnosed without this comprehensive evaluation.
