ADHD Screening and Treatment

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

Effective Tuesday, September 3, 2019:

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. Steve Large, as follows:

  • September 11th: 5:00pm--6:30pm in 112 Warfield Hall
  • September 25th: 5:00pm--6:30pm in 112 Warfield Hall
  • October 9th: 5:00pm--6:30pm in 112 Warfield Hall
  • October 23rd: 5:00pm--6:30pm in 112 Warfield Hall
  • November 6th: 5:00pm--6:30pm in 112 Warfield Hall
  • November 20th: 5:00pm--6:30pm in 112 Warfield Hall

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 do not need to schedule in advance, they can simply show to the session that is most convenient for them.

After attending the the Brian Booster Workshop students who may still benefit from additional support may elect to complete an attention problem screening at SCS (students may call to schedule 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 futher 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.

Students diagnosed with ADHD who may also want to receive accommodations
