ACADEMIC SCREENINGS

All of our academic screening appointments have filled for the Fall semester of 2016. We anticipate that we will reopen screenings on January 10, 2017 and the sooner you complete the screening form at that time, the quicker we can get you in for an appointment (depending on your schedule within 1-2 weeks).  If you are concerned that this will put you in academic difficulty please contact your academic advisor and you can take any of the steps below:

  • You can request an academic screening from a psychologist in the Champaign-Urbana community or your home community. The psychologist may be able to make a diagnosis of ADHD for you in order for you to see a physician for medication or register for services with DRES.  Or if the psychologist determines that further assessment is necessary to establish a diagnosis, s/he can refer you to DRES for the testing.  The community option would require you to utilize your health insurance policy and, likely, include an out-of-pocket expense for you.  We recommend that you determine what costs you will be incur before scheduling the assessment. We also recommend that you provide the psychologist with the link to the documentation requirements at DRES if you are also seeking academic accommodations (http://disability.illinois.edu/applying-services/documentation-requirements#q6).
  • You can receive a comprehensive evaluation in Champaign-Urbana or your home community by a psychologist. A list of referral options in the Champaign-Urbana, Bloomington-Normal, Chicago and St. Louis communities are at the bottom of the page. You may also want to contact other psychologists in your insurance network and ask if they provide ADHD/cognitive assessments for adults.  Again, we recommend that you provide the psychologist with the link to documentation requirements at DRES (see above);
  • You may also want to consult with your primary care physician in your home community. In general, primary care physicians will not start a trial of medication until a psychologist has confirmed the diagnosis, but they can refer you to psychologists in your community who provide ADHD/academic screenings and/or assessments;
  • You can meet with a clinician at the Counseling Center during the semester. The goal of these appointments would not be to determine if you have a disability, but they could be used to improve time management and organizational skills or other issues that are affecting your academic performance.  You can schedule an Initial Appointment by calling 333-3704 and it is best to call early in the morning as these appointments tend to schedule quickly.

If you have been diagnosed with ADHD previously or prescribed a medication to treat ADHD and you are seeking medication on campus, please contact McKinley Health Center at 333-2711. If you have received academic accommodations previously and are seeking accommodations at the University of Illinois, you should contact the DRES Student Services office at 333-4603 or click to register for services.
