Current FSU students seeking an ADHD assessment at the PCC must first be referred
from the Birkam Health Center (BHC). Thus, the student’s first contact will be with
a medical professional in the BHC to discuss their concerns related to ADHD symptoms.
During this initial appointment the medical professional will offer a brief assessment
of the student’s symptoms. This brief assessment will include the Conners’ ADHD Self-Report
Screening Rating Scale and/or another similar assessment. If in the medical professional's
opinion the student is experiencing ADHD symptoms, which significantly impact the
student’s functioning (i.e. student performing below average academically) he/she
will use this data to warrant the referral to the PCC for a full ADHD assessment.
If the student is not a patient of the BHC he/she may have their primary care physician
make this referral using a similar protocol.
