About the ADHD Clinic

The ADHD Clinic is a specialty program at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology of Rutgers University. Our therapists are doctoral students from the clinical and school psychology programs who are trained and supervised by Dr. Stephanie Lyon, a licensed psychologist and a faculty member of the Department of Applied Psychology, and Dr. Francine Conway, a licensed psychologist and Dean of the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. We provided individual therapy for children, support for parents/caregivers, and consultation for schools.

Treatment at the ADHD Clinic begins with an initial interview and assessment, usually over the course of 2-3 meetings. Following this intake process, our short-term treatment approach typically consists of approximately 12 individual therapy sessions for the child. Parents of children receiving treatment at the clinic will attend our unique Parent University program. Parent University provides an opportunity for caregivers to learn new strategies to support their children and allows them to connect with other parents sharing similar experiences.

Therapists at the ADHD Clinic also welcome opportunities to collaborate with schools and teachers in order to best serve our patients.

Fees for treatment at the ADHD Clinic are based on sliding scale.
