“Repeating myself in the morning is getting so frustrating-why can’t she just listen the first time!”
“He can play video games for hours so why is his teacher calling me to tell me that he can’t focus?”
“She is always losing or forgetting things even when I remind her”
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that impacts many children and adults but is often misunderstood. Did you know that there are several different brain types for ADHD? Making sure that an appropriate assessment of the type of ADHD is very important so that a specific treatment plan can be identified. Behavioral, environmental, diet, and medication interventions are all part of the menu of options for treatment.
What we do know from research is that early intervention is key. Helping children learn to be successful in the school environment will increase the likelihood that they can maximize the benefits of their learning and continue to have a healthy self-esteem. If your child is struggling or as an adult you have been trying to cope with this on your own, consider making an appointment for an assessment. We would be happy to discuss all of the treatment options with you.
