The Evaluation Clinic is part of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Center. Our clinic provides evaluations, confirms diagnosis and offers easy-to-implement treatment recommendations for patients (5-17 years old) with suspected attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, depression or anxiety.
If you are concerned your child may be struggling with any of these common mental health diseases, you may want to consider the Evaluation Clinic service. Our staff will work in partnership with you and your pediatrician to thoroughly evaluate your child.
- Comprehensive evaluation (including structured clinical interviews and review of behavior rating scale data) with a member of the Evaluation Clinic team.
- Timely written and verbal feedback for families and referring physicians.
- Pharmacologic management guidelines including medication options, dosing and side effect information.
- Local options for outpatient or inpatient psychotherapy services.
A typical referral involves two visits within a two-week period. At the last visit, you and your child will receive information about any identified diagnoses and recommended treatment. If a medication recommendation is made, staff from the Evaluation Clinic will provide guidance to your pediatrician about medication options.
Children seen in the Evaluation Clinic typically do not return to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Center for follow-up care, although our staff is available for additional consultations as needed.
To refer your child to the Evaluation Clinic, your pediatrician should complete and fax a referral form to our intake coordinators at (414) 266-3735. Once your pediatrician has made the referral, call our Intake Line at (414) 266-3339 to schedule the first appointment.
