Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder where a child has difficulty paying attention and/or hyperactive, impulsive behaviors that makes it hard for your child to be successful in a variety of settings (home, school, sports, hobbies).

What's the best next step? 

If your child is struggling with being successful at school, we talk through the 504 Plan and IEP process with you and show you how to request these services through your child's school district. 

Most often, we will attend the initial eligibility meeting with you (at no extra charge) so that we can explain the assessment results to your child's academic team and assist with creating appropriate goals. 


what if we need help
getting school services?

ADHD can often look like other things, such a really active child, learning differences, autism, or emotional concerns. 

Having an assessment that ONLY assess ADHD can lead to a misdiagnosis and interventions that may do more harm than good. 

To best assess for ADHD, we look at a complete picture of your child that includes a developmental history, cognitive (IQ), actual age-level functioning, executive functioning, academic testing (in reading, writing, and math). 

We also include parent feedback about what behaviors you see at home and teacher feedback about classroom behaviors.  

Schedule A Consultation

HOw do you assess for ADHD?

The best next step is to schedule a 15-minute consultation so you can ask any specific questions about the assessment process and we can coordinate calendars to schedule the assessment.  

We are currently scheduling two-weeks from the initial phone consultation.

now we have direction

Dr. Griffiths and her team helped me better understand PDA and how this was affecting my son at school.  We know have all the right supports in place and I feel more confident as a parent. 

helped getting services

We were able to use the assessment from AZ Peds Center to get DDD services in our home and my daughter is making progress in the areas we were concerned about. 

helped at school meeting

I was so grateful to have Mr. Albaugh attend the first IEP meeting with me.  He was able to share the assessment with the team and help create goals.

I felt really welcome

My daughter has a lot of energy and Dr. Ford was so patient and kind to her.  It really helped me feel at ease knowing they could keep up with her active energy.

What makes us different

We Do Details

Every assessment includes an understanding of your child's strengths and areas of growth.  We collaborate with teachers, pediatricians, therapists, family members, and medication providers. 

We're Personal

Our office is designed to look  and feel like your living room.  Your child will feel at home and relaxed for the assessment.  We don't do stuffy or big fancy words that real people don't understand.  Our reports are easy to understand.  

We're Experienced

We went to school for a long time to earn those little letters after our names. We also worked in a variety of settings with different kids and families (so nothing really shocks us).  Our team also continues to attend trainings, obtain certifications, and keep up to date with recent research and mental heath concerns. 

Phone Consult

Let's talk more about working together

Multiple openings every week for us to schedule 15-minutes to talk through the process.  We'll talk about your concerns, goals, and how we develop a strength-based assessment for your child.
