TESTING/ ASSESSMENT RESOURCES

University of Louisville psychologists are making ADHD evaluations more accessible and affordable for Louisville area families.

With the aid of a grant from the WHAS Crusade for Children, Paul Rosen, an associate professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Science and ADHD Specialist, has initiated the UofL ADHD Evaluation Service. This service will provide children ages 6-17 years with ADHD evaluations. The testing will be offered on a sliding scale with fees for most families ranging from $10-$100.
