Talking to your Doctor

Since ADHD is a complex condition involving biological and environmental factors, your first step is to talk to your child’s doctor. He’ll perform a thorough evaluation including an interview with you. You’ll be asked to answer questions about your child’s behavior and how it affects life at home and at school. You may also be asked about other family members who may have ADHD, as ADHD is believed to have a genetic basis. We’ve prepared a doctor visit conversation tool to help you get the most out of your visit. Download this tool to help start the conversation. Listen to Dr. Corbier’s advice to parents on what to discuss with the doctor.
