Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Clinic
Our holistic approach to ADHD evaluation and treatment is based on proven techniques that offer comprehensive and personalized support to patients, families and physicians. We believe deeply in providing the highest quality resources that will promote your child’s developmental well-being. Our two ADHD clinics ensure comprehensive care and support, not only for your child, but also for you and your family, as well as your pediatrician.
Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, can seem forgetful, impatient or distracted. They may daydream, overreact or behave impulsively. Our specialists at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s can determine whether your child has ADHD – a chronic neurological condition caused by differences in a child’s brain.
If undiagnosed or untreated, the symptoms of ADHD can interfere with your child’s development, relationships and everyday life – at home, school and play. If your child has ADHD, we’ll recommend helpful tools and therapy options for your child, family and care providers. At Phoenix Children’s, our ADHD clinics treat children ranging from 5 to 18 years of age.
We understand the interconnected medical and behavioral symptoms and effects of this complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Our team takes a holistic, personalized and comprehensive approach, working across specialties ranging from psychology and neurology to physical medicine and rehabilitation to offer personalized care for your child. We support your family, too, to make life with ADHD more manageable.
Your child benefits from the combined expertise of general and developmental pediatricians at Phoenix Children’s ADHD Diagnostic Clinic as well as our ADHD Medication Management Clinic. Services at our medication management clinic include guidance for doctors whose patients take ADHD medication. Your child’s referring pediatrician or family physician can schedule an appointment for your child.
Evaluation and Consultation
ADHD symptoms can have subtle or obvious effects on a child’s ability to learn, function and get along with others. Our developmental pediatricians excel in evaluating each child’s unique challenges to differentiate among the different types of ADHD. Experts identify related conditions as well, such as neurological disorders that contribute to developmental delays.
Our doctors will collaborate with you and your child’s care providers to discuss treatment and evaluate progress. We educate other practitioners about ways to improve ADHD diagnosis and care management. This includes learning how to apply standardized tools and therapies, and access community resources.
Research to Improve Care
