The ADHD clinic is staffed by healthcare professionals from the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. The team includes child psychiatrists and licensed clinical psychologists who are experienced in this field and offer their expertise and support. The clinic operates on weekdays.

The Following Services are Offered:

  • Initial psychiatric clinical assessment for children with suspected attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • We are able to offer diagnostic assessments and ongoing care for children who have complex ADHD along with co-occurring neurodevelopmental delays (NDD). 
  • ADHD Behavioral Parent Education Group

If families want their children to be seen in our clinic, here are the steps they should follow:

  1. Get in touch with their insurance provider directly to confirm that behavioral health benefits are available and authorized for their children.

  2. Contact their child's primary care provider and request that they get in touch with the Physicians Referral Center on their behalf. This is an important step to initiate the referral process.

Insurance and self-pay options are available.

What is the expected timeframe for an appointment?

Appointments are determined according to clinical triage criteria and are reviewed by a team of clinicians.  Our goal is for patients to be seen within 3-4 weeks from referral date.  

Referrals are tracked through a 5-step process: 

  1. MIND Institute Clinic Receives Referral
  2. Records Collection
  3. Clinic Triage
  4. Insurance Authorization
  5. Appointment Scheduling

What information should be provided with the referral?

  1. Patient's current and past medical and developmental history
  2. Completion of a patient intake questionnaire prior to the appointment
  3. IEP/IPP records
  4. Diagnostic and/or psychological testing
  5. School records if applicable and available
