ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center

Children and teens with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or behavior disorders struggle with symptoms that interfere with their lives and can put them on a collision course with parents, teachers and classmates.

The Child Mind Institute’s ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center specializes in diagnosing these children and teens and providing them with effective, evidence-based treatments.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
  • Conduct Disorder (CD)
  • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD)
  • Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED)

When medication may be helpful, our team works with board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists at the Child Mind Institute or partners with your own physician. Our psychiatrists offer expert consultation on whether medication can improve treatment outcome, and provide ongoing medication management when needed.
