There is an article on the site that outlines a number of different ways to find a health care professional in your area.

 

Some websites that offer directories of medical professionals that treat ADHD are:

 

  • CHADD (Children and Adults with AD/HD) Professional Directory
  • Attention Deficit Disorder Association Directory
  • Attention Deficit Disorder Resources National Directory
  • ADD Consults Professional Directory
  • National Center for Girls and Women with ADHD Professional Directory

     

     

    Besides these sites, the article offers other ideas to help you.

     

    I hope this helps and please let us know how everything is going.
