ADHD in Iowa
Looking for Someone in Des Moines that works with adults with ADD
Hello. I am adult and believe I have attention deficit disorder, but was never diagnosed as a child. I have read numerous books and articles on Adult ADHD and so much of what I read is just like I’m reading my “own story”. I have so many similarities to other individuals stories. I have also taken the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale ASRS-V1, which indicates that my symptoms may be consistent with Adult ADHD. I am looking for a provider in the Des Moines or surrounding area that has experience working with adults with attention deficit disorder. I have looked online, contacted CHADD and have not been able to get the name of anyone in the vicinity of Des Moines that works with adults with ADD or that tests adults with ADD. I have seen two practitioners. One basically told me that I couldn’t have ADD because I wasn’t diagnosed as a child, and the other place I went said they don’t do any kind of testing and told me there was nobody in Des Moines that works with adults with ADD, which I find hard to believe. However, I have still not found anyone. If anyone out their has any information or resources I would be so grateful if you would pass that along to me. Thanks!!
