EPISODE #150: What Should I Say at My Child’s First ADHD Appointment?

SUMMARY

You’ve researched providers, you’ve verified insurance, made it through the long waiting list, and it is FINALLY time for the first ADHD appointment – the intake. We know you want to make the most of the visit to support your child, but it can get overwhelming between the questionnaires and forms. You may have a running list in your notes of everything in your head but have no idea what to mention and when. We’ve sat on the professional and parent sides of the evaluation, and today, we are sharing questions you’ll be asked, areas that are evaluated, and encouragement for you in the process.
