It's not unusual to have difficulty focusing on academic work. The causes are varied and include:
ADHD Screening at CAPS
Due to the exceptional volume of requests for ADHD testing CAPS has received, we are unable to accommodate any further requests for ADHD testing until the Fall 2021 semester. Visit the Resources tab below for information regarding other agencies in the Bloomington area that may offer ADHD testing.

Other Diagnostic Materials
In addition to your screening, we will need the following items to complete your assessment:
- A questionnaire from a parent or guardian about your past and present concentration problems (you will need to sign a release so we can contact them)
- School records from kindergarten through 12th grade to assess past academic performance
- A personal interview by a CAPS Counselor
- In some cases, a urine drug screen may be requested at any point in the screening process
If your screening and interview suggest you may have ADHD or another psychiatric disorder, you will receive a follow-up appointment with a CAPS psychiatrist.
If you are already being treated for ADHD, you can transfer your care to CAPS. You will need to complete the screening process and sign a release so CAPS can obtain your previous medical records.
Student Stimulant Misuse Policy
Stimulants are Schedule-II drugs, which are controlled medications strictly regulated by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). Your physician cannot give refills for your stimulant medication unless a new prescription is written for each refill. Schedule-II medications cannot be refilled by telephone. Misuse of stimulant medications is a common and recognized concern. CAPS psychiatrists will NOT write prescriptions for lost or stolen prescriptions. Do not give your prescription medication to anyone. Keep your medication in a safe place where others do not have access.
