Good Morning Everyone,
My 18 y/o we suspect has ADHD, can you all share with me the path to obtaining a Dx for ADHD…can he be Dx by a psychologist, psychiatrist whom ?????? and what is the actual testing required. I am navigating unchartered waters…we suspected something for years but dropped the ball. Educationally he has done amazing for most of his life, but had to work 10’s harder than most and in my reading he has the classic symptoms. Last fall while at his first year at the university he went thru ‘hell on earth” with school. We have a very supportive primary MD.

thank you all in advance!!!.
