ADHD Clinician Directory

It can be really challenging to find a doctor who will listen to you and support your choices for your child. It can be even harder to find a doctor who actually knows about ADHD and its complexity. It took me 5 years and 6 doctors to find someone who knew how to diagnose ADHD in adults!

Do you know a totally awesome ADHD clinician? Someone who works great with your kids or you (if you have ADHD) and understands ADHD and its comorbidities?

This could be a…
• developmental pediatrician
• psychologist
• psychiatrist
• mental health nurse practitioner
• neurologist
• counselor
• occupational therapist
• learning disabilities therapist

Or even a
• professional organizer

If so, please share in the comments! Bonuses for clinicians who are open to any educational and parenting approach that works for the child. If the doctor is open to homeschooling, make sure to include it in your comment.


Example comment:

Dr Keith Swanson, psychologist
Mid-Valley Counseling Center
2250 D St NE Salem, OR 97301
(503) 364-6093
I know a great doctor in Salem, Oregon. Keith is a Christian homeschool dad with ADHD himself who is also a psychologist. I cannot recommend him highly enough.


My hope is to create a resource to help others find a doctor near them.

Please share info about your awesome doctor even if it isn’t in North America. I will add more categories as needed. Thank you for helping others find great, helpful resources!

Blessings!

P.S. I have ADHD myself. So while this is a great idea, I may not consistently get the comments added into the above categories. Don’t despair: you can always look through the comments. Eventually, I hope to find a better way to host this information, but for now, this is a much-needed start.

    He is very open to homeschool and has given our family great, positive feedback about our Homeschooling.

    And I don’t have a card so I can’t look at the info while I type, but you can find them online 😀
