Difficulty focusing, restlessness, and impulsive behavior are some of the hallmarks of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a common neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children and adults. If you or your child have these symptoms or have already been diagnosed with ADHD, our psychiatrists and psychologists can help. As ADHD specialists, we help you or your child manage ADHD.
Duke Health offers locations throughout the Triangle. Find one near you.
If you experience ADHD-related symptoms but have never been evaluated for the disorder, a comprehensive evaluation can help you understand if you may have ADHD. You leave the evaluation with specific treatment recommendations to address your concerns and a timeline for getting started with either medication or therapy.
