Bill Benninger and Alan Graham created ADDvisor.com in 2000 as a way to offer evidence based information and services the the ADHD community. They met in a coach training program (Mentorcoach), and quickly became aware of each other's interest and commitment to helping child, adolescents, adults and their families to navigate the challenges of ADHD. Their partnership grew and, in 2006, they were the first psychologists in the United States to be certified to administer Cogmed Working Memory Training. In 2016, Alan and Bill authored an article that appears in The Journal of Applied Neuropsychology: Child titled, "Parental Perceptions of the Efficacy of Cogmed Working Memory Training."

After 45 years of practicing psychology, I (Bill) will be retiring on May 25, 2023. It has been a pleasure providing ADHD diagnostic and treatment services for so many years.
The practice is left in extremely good hands as my daughter/psychologist, Dr. Tara Benninger, Ph.D., (previously at Nationwide Children’s Hospital) is a partner in the practice will continue to provide ADHD diagnostic and treatment services, just as I have. She will also be seeing clients for Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluations as well as cognitive and learning disability testing. All new referrals should contact her to schedule an appointment. She can be reached at 614-233-1761 or by email at DrTara@TaraBenninger.com.
After May 25, if there are questions regarding previous evaluations or services, please contact the office manager (Jane) at 614-888-2343 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Jane will be staying on as office manager and can always be contacted via phone or email.
I will continue to provide a few services including the Cogmed Program and the ADHD/ODD parent group. Dr. Tara and I will also be lecturing nationally to professionals on the evaluation and treatment of adults, adolescents and children with ADHD and related disorders through the California-based Institute for Brain Potential"
