Services for Your Child with ADHD

The Center for ADHD at Cincinnati Children’s provides a multidisciplinary approach to assessing and treating children and adolescents with ADHD.

The care team at the Center for ADHD provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art, diagnostic evaluations for children with ADHD. We use advanced assessment techniques to pinpoint your child’s specific treatment needs. Using a multidisciplinary approach to care, we develop individualized recommendations for addressing each child’s unique behavioral issues.

In addition to our assessment services, we offer a range of outpatient treatment programs designed to teach parents and children the skills necessary for effectively managing the effects of ADHD on the child’s daily functioning at home, at school, and in the community. Many of our programs are group-based, which allows for us to help the largest number of families possible in a time-effective manner.
