Local Clinicians

The following is a partial list of local private clinicians familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD). You can expect to pay professional rates; however, your health insurance may cover some of the costs.

  • Check with the professional of your choice and your health insurance carrier to verify coverage.
  • Be advised that many major health insurance companies do not cover the diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities and ADHD.
  • Make sure you understand all costs before treatment.
  • The clinicians listed below charge approximately the same price for the CSU-required assessment battery.
  • Once you schedule an appointment to be tested, please honor your commitment. Be on time and attend all required sessions.
