ADHD Resources


Proper diagnosis of ADHD involves multiple assessments to identify symptoms and identify or rule out other conditions that could be present or that could mimic ADHD. Gulf Coast Family Services begins the process with client and family medical history, initial screening, parent and/or client interview, and parent/teacher surveys. Referrals are made to your general practitioner physician or pediatrician for evaluations of vision and hearing and general wellness exam to rule out possible physical reasons for presenting symptoms. Referrals are made for psychoeducational and neuropsychological evaluations to the following practitioners:

Melissa Ogden, Ph.D., ABPP-CN - Adults (18+)

Laura G Goulden, PHD - Children and adolescents

University of South Alabama Psychology Clinic - all ages but based on an application process.
