ADHD Screening and Treatment

Student Counseling Service does NOT provide psychoeducational testing for attention problems.

Effective: Monday, January 27, 2020

Students who suspect they may have an attention problem but have not been previously diagnosed or treated

Should start by attending a session of the Brain Booster Workshop that will be offered by Dr. John Ward, as follows:

  • Tuesday, February 4th, 5-6 pm, at Student Counseling Service, Room 196E
  • Monday, February 17th, 4-5 pm, at Student Counseling Service, Room 196E
  • Tuesday, March 3rd, 5-6 pm, at Student Counseling Service, Room 196E
  • Monday, March 16th, 4-5 pm, at Student Counseling Service, Room 196E
  • Tuesday, March 31st, 5-6 pm, at Student Counseling Service, Room 196E
  • Monday, April 13th, 4-5 pm, at Student Counseling Service, Room 196E

At the workshop, students will learn behavioral strategies to improve their memory and concentration. Students will also be informed of possible next steps in treatment, if necessary.

These workshops are free. Students need to schedule in advance. Please call 513-529-4634 for registering.

After attending the Brian Booster Workshop students who may still benefit from additional support may elect to complete an Attention Problem Screening (APS) at SCS. Students may call to schedule for an APS to be completed no sooner than 2 weeks after attending Brain Booster. The goal of the screening is to identify possible causes for attention symptoms and make recommendations for formal treatment and/or further assessment, as needed.

Otherwise, they may choose to contact one of the providers listed here for psychoeducational testing for attention problems.

Students who have been previously diagnosed and treated for ADHD and are seeking to continue their medication regimen

  1. Students may choose to continue receiving services from their current providers, or
  2. If the student has been properly evaluated within the last two (2) years, they may contact the Student Health Service (SHS) at 513-529-3000 to schedule an appointment for continuation of treatment with a medical provider at SHS.**
  3. Otherwise, they will have to attend the Brain Booster Workshop.

**Please note that you may need to transfer previous treatment records to SHS, therefore allow for sufficient transition time between your current provider and your new one at SHS.
