Welcome to the ADHD Clinic at UNCG

FAQs

What  services do you provide?

The ADHD Clinic offers a large number and variety of psychological assessment and treatment services that are evidence-based – that is, services that research has shown to be effective.  Our assessment services include: diagnostic evaluations for ADHD and various other psychological disorders, intelligence testing, and screening for learning disabilities.

Do you test for disorders other than ADHD?

Yes. The comprehensive psychological evaluation approach that we use allows us not only to diagnose ADHD (if present), but also to make diagnoses about other behavioral, emotional, and learning disorders when present.

What ages do you serve?

At this time, clinical services are only available to students at UNCG.

Do I need a referral from a doctor or some other health care professional to make an appointment?

For clinical services, students at UNCG need to contact Student Health Services to request a referral to the ADHD Clinic.  You will be given a document which you bring to the ADHD Clinic.

How do I make an appointment?

Appointments can be made by calling our office at the main ADHD Clinic number (336-346-3192). When you call, basic contact data as well as more detailed information regarding your history and current concerns will be taken.  You will then need to come to our office at 1100 W. Market Street, 3rd floor to pick up a packet of questionnaires that need to be completed by you, a significant other, and a parent. Once all questionnaire packets and your SHS referral have been returned, you will be added to our waiting list and a clinician will contact you by phone to schedule an appointment.

Do you accept insurance?

The ADHD Clinic is in-network for students using Student Blue insurance.  The cost of services is covered under Student Blue with the exception of $25, which will be posted to your student account.  We do not file insurance with any other provider.  If you carry insurance other than Student Blue, the cost of services is posted to your student account for payment.  It is your responsibility to seek reimbursement from your insurance provider.

What happens after the evaluation is completed?

A comprehensive written report is prepared within two to four weeks after an evaluation has been completed.  Approximately one to two weeks after that, a one-hour feedback appointment is scheduled to review diagnostic conclusions and treatment recommendations.  For those individuals diagnosed with ADHD, several different evidence-based treatment services are available upon request.

Do you prescribe medication?

At the present time we do not have a physician available to prescribe medication. We can,  however, work closely with your own physician to help set up and implement a medication trial in which objective ratings of ADHD symptoms, daily functioning, and possible side effects  can be collected. Such results can then be shared with your physician to inform subsequent  medication management.

What about research?

To help us learn more about ADHD and its clinical management, we welcome those who wish to assist us with our research efforts. At any given time there is likely to be an ongoing research project for which ADHD Clinic clients may be eligible to participate. Clients receiving clinical services from the ADHD Clinic are not required to participate in research. All research participation is completely voluntary.
