Hi- Does anyone know of a top psychologist for diagnosing/treating ADHD in children (preferably in Cambridge but also considering London)? thanks

Hi babs25, you don't want a GP recommendation as your first port of call? I recommend you do this. You may find this interesting, if you haven't seen it yet ... http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/neuroscience/show/20130420/.

I had some concerns on this front for my DS2. I went to GP, who referred us to community paeds. Met with a very nice and understanding doctor who was perceptive and supportive but reluctant to label, and said to come back again if problems continued. Issues actually seem to be improving so we haven't been back, but am sure she would have seen us again and made official diagnosis/recommendations if need be. What does your GP say?

Sorry I'm a bit late on this one but I'd really recommend taking a look at Dr Edward Hallowell's positive approach to ADHD. He's a Harvard psychiatrist and one of the global leaders in ADHD. He's based in the US but is doing a workshop in London in Sep/Oct. www.addspark.co.uk
