Child ADHD

[intense_content_box icon=”arrow-right” size=”2″ position=”topleft” animation=”bounce” border_radius=”20px”]Although it can be challenging to raise a kid with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), the important thing to keep in mind is that both those conditions ARE treatable.[/intense_content_box]

Children with ADHD or ADD have difficulty getting organized, keeping their focus, or make thoughtful plans before reacting to situations. They may have difficulty with academic subjects as it is hard for them to stop fidgeting long enough to pay attention in class. Although there are some gender differences in displaying the problematic behaviors, these conditions affect boys as well as girls. If you have concerns about your child’s behavior at home and/or school, please call us. We will set up a meeting with you to discuss your concerns as well as getting information about the family’s history. We then sit down with your child for an in debt assessment of the behavioral concerns. Ideally we would want to hear from the child’s teachers to be able to best address the academic problems your child is facing. Using an integrated, comprehensive system of services, this personalized, multidisciplinary treatment plan may include:

* Psychoeducational Evaluation
* Individual and Family Therapy
* Social Competence Group Therapy
* Educational and Tutorial Recommendations & Support Services
* Integrated Case Management

We are available to join with families at school meetings when needed to report and interpret findings and to coordinate support services.

Psychological Diagnosis
After a comprehensive assessment, our psychologist will address learning differences, attention problems and other educational concerns with you and  your child. Integrating developmental, social, emotional and biological factors, this psychological evaluation helps further clarify an individual’s processing style to design educational planning and therapeutic strategies and recommendations.

Call us today to see if we can help.

Define your goals. Think about what you would like to get out of counseling. It might be helpful to write a list of events, relationship issues, or feelings that you think are contributing to your distress

Be an active participant. This is your counseling experience, so be as active as you can in deciding how to use the time. Be honest with the counselor and give her or him feedback about how you see the sessions progressing.

Be patient with yourself. Growth takes time, effort, and patience. All of your coping skills, behavior patterns, and self-perceptions have been learned and reinforced over a long period of time, so change can be difficult and slow at times.

Follow your counselor's recommendations. Take the time between sessions to complete any activities suggested by your counselor. Counseling is intended to improve your life in the "real world," so making efforts to try out and practice new behaviors, approaches, or ways of thinking could be a crucial element to the success of your counseling experience..
