In Reply to: How do get diagnosed???? posted by Trisha Crawford on January 26, 2000 at 06:19:42:
: I think that my husband has A.D.D. He was diagnosed as a child and has not been treated in years. He has a hard time holding down a job(not to mention other symptoms that I have been reading about) and since we now have an infant, it is frustrating and I need to know how to help him. I know that you have to go to see a Psychologist? But how do I find one that does this kind of testing and how do I get him there?
: Anyone with info could help

You will probably want to contact your regular MD and ask him to referr you to a doctor or clinic that tests for ADD. This what we did with our son. Your child though will probably have to be much older than an infant for them to test him. What is your husband doing though to help his ADD? Sounds like he could use a bit of help too. Why not have him seen by someone who deals with adult ADD while you are at it so he can get back on track. Good Luck.
