ADHD Screening and Counseling

I am an ADHD Certified Clinical Services Provider (ADHD-CCSP). In other words, I am licensed to work with ADHD clients at a clinical level. The ADHD-CCSP certification demonstrates expertise in ADHD to provide the best tools and strategies for improving clinical outcomes. This credential was obtained through rigorous training provided by the Institute of Certified ADHD Professionals, which is endorsed by CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder).

I am offering ADHD Screenings at Riverside Counseling Center (in collaboration with Donald Hall, MD) to provide evaluations for ADHD. This screening is an additional tool to help determine if an individual meets the criteria for ADHD. I will integrate testing results with traditional clinical interviewing and parent/teacher reports to assess for ADHD. Following a comprehensive evaluation, I will offer recommendations for improving concentration and performance based on each child’s unique cognitive abilities.

We all know kids who fidget, who seem distracted, who interrupt, or don’t follow through with instructions.

While it’s normal for kids to forget their homework, daydream during class or act without thinking, inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. ADHD makes it difficult for a person to inhibit their spontaneous responses, including everything from movement to speech to assertiveness.

Some children with ADHD may be constantly in-motion, bouncing off the walls and disrupting others around them. Other children with ADHD may sit quietly, with their attention miles away. ADHD can be seen in teenagers as well as adults.

There are three primary characteristics of ADHD: Inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity, though all three aren’t always prominent in one child.

Children with ADHD may:

  • Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
  • Appear not to be listening when spoken to
  • Constantly fidget and squirm
  • Talk excessively
  • Act without thinking
  • Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
  • Have a quick temper or “short fuse”

Whether or not your symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. Children who can’t focus or control themselves or get into trouble at school often find it hard to make friends. These frustrations can later lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family.

Treatment can make a dramatic difference in your symptoms. With the right support, you can get on track for success in all areas of life.
