What Sets Us Apart

Child and adolescent psychiatrists, developmental behavioral pediatricians, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, social workers, and learning specialists at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone, diagnose and treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a chronic neurobehavioral condition that affects millions of children in the United States. These children may act impulsively, become distracted, or struggle to concentrate at times. Inattention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity may be so severe that it interferes with daily activities.

Specialists at the Child Study Center include some of the nation’s leading experts on ADHD and have extensive experience assessing and treating children with ADHD. Our clinicians can work closely with you and your child’s pediatrician, neurologist, teachers, and therapists to develop the best treatment plan for your child.
