Help for son!

Hi Everyone. Does anyone know of any good programs/doctors for ADHD in the Metro DC area? My son is 8 years old and it is a constant battle for him daily. I am on the fence about medication also. Just some guidance as I am pretty new to the diagnosis and looking to find some programs or doctors who can help me out a little. Thanks Everyone!

Hi! There are many resource here around DC.

1, The Washington, D.C. Center for Neurocognitive Excellence LLC. They are different way to help treat ADHD, (including nerofeedback) you can give them a call to find out.

2, JSSA, great place to received counseling or therapy and they take all insurance, the only thing is there is always a wait list.

3, Expressive therapy center in north Potomac, this might be bit far from you but there are good counselor and program there.

Also, I was reading a great book called “Finally focused” it is helpful for parents who wants to explore other ways other than medication.

Good luck! I have one that is 5 years old it is so hard, but we will get through it!

Hi there, Kennedy Krieger Institute is an excellent facility that can provide Psychological evaluation, OT, Speech and behavior therapy for individuals and families. I highly recommend. The closest location to DC is in Columbia, MD. It's worth the commute.
