Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The ADHD Program brings together the Division of General Pediatrics, the Child Development Program, Neurology, Psychiatry and Psychology for the assessment of ADHD patients. The program aims to provide a central intake for ADHD patients and direct them toward the most appropriate care while combining expertise across disciplines.


Who we are

We are an interdisciplinary team comprised of pediatricians, developmental-behavioral pediatricians, a psychologist and a speech-language pathologist, which assesses school-aged children for complex, treatment-resistant ADHD. A treatment protocol is established and the patient returns to their regular physician for follow-up care.
