ADHD Follow-up

The best approach to addressing and treating ADHD is for the pediatrician to work in collaboration with the child, parents and teachers. This collaboration includes completion of an assessment that will help to determine the extent of the problem and aid in providing a successful management plan.

You will be given Vanderbilt Assessment Scales for parents and teachers that evaluate your child’s attention/behavior at home and at school. The questions are primarily focused on ADD/ADHD but also help to identify other behavioral difficulties that your child may be experiencing.

The provider will review the scales, establish a diagnosis, determine the level of medication, if needed, and develop a management plan that may include behavior therapy. Once your child begins a course of medication and/or behavior therapy, you and the teacher will complete a second follow-up Vanderbilt Assessment Scale. These scales will help the pediatrician to monitor your child’s progress.

It is important for the provider to have follow-up visits with your child every three to four months to review the assessment scales, the management plan and any prescribed medications. The Longwood Pediatrics clinical social workers, Tim Schuettge, LICSW, and Jay Campbell, LICSW, will be coordinating ADD including medication refills, referrals and other procedures.
