Child & Adolescent Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Assessment Clinic
Michael Garron Hospital's (MGH) child and adolescent attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) assessment clinic provides assessment and short-term treatment for ADHD in children and youth up to age 17.
Along with anxiety disorders, ADHD is one of the most common mental health conditions affecting children.
Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment options will be reviewed, including parent education sessions and coaching, recommendations for the school, and medications. We work closely with community mental health partners who provide groups for children with behavioural challenges.
Our team includes an outpatient nurse, an adolescent medicine paediatrician and child and adolescent psychiatrists.
Referral to the ADHD clinic is made at the time of the initial outpatient psychiatric consultation, which can be accessed through a referral by a primary care physician.
