  • I don't know of any - sorry - but I was born in Pottstown PA! I know it may be far, but try CHOP (Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania) - they may be able to recommend someone.
    My son has ADHD as well - I can't remember where we went ( this was years ago) - but I think where we went was some satellite office of CHOP in King of Prussia.

  • Mys son is taking metadate and it has worked wonders for him. He went from making f's and d's to A/b honor roll and has a diff attitude as well! He has support from family and the school as well.

  • They may need the psychologist consult to confirm the diagnosis and to rule out any behavior disorders. That's what happened in my son's case.
