CEMAD was created to
provide a multidisciplinary (psychologists, educators, counselors and medical
professionals) center for evaluating, diagnosing, treating and providing ongoing
support for children, adolescents and adults with attention deficit disorder
with or without hyperactivity. The uniqueness of
CEMAD is the staff of experienced professionals who work in the community, and
are aware of the local resources needed for comprehensive management of persons
with attentional disorders.
An initial screening
evaluation is done by our medical director. In addition to a hearing and vision
screening, a neurological exam is performed. When necessary, a thorough psycho
educational evaluation is done by our psychologist. A team meeting with
evaluators is scheduled to discuss findings and recommendations. Meetings with
our counselor are scheduled to assist in implementing team recommendations.
Ongoing support such
as school visits, phone contacts with teachers and other professionals is
provided on an as needed basis. If medical intervention is necessary our team
will make suggestions to your primary care provider.
