Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) assessments are available at CAPS for students with SHIP insurance. Students without SHIP insurance are referred to providers in their private insurance network for assessment and/or medication management. Assessments are tailored to the student’s presenting complaints and include:
- Clinical interview
- Standardized structured adult ADHD interview
- Formal psychological assessment tests
- Assessment review with treatment recommendations
CAPS will provide internal referrals as indicated for psychological, psychiatric, and psychopharmacological treatments to ameliorate ADHD symptoms. Additional CAPS skills building and support services may be included in an individual student’s comprehensive treatment plan for ADHD and for additional conditions identified in the extended assessment.
Students requiring accommodations related to diagnosed ADHD are referred to the Center for Accessible Education following the diagnostic assessment. Medication management may be provided in partnership with a student’s primary care provider at the Ashe Center.
