Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder – AD/HD Treatment
A person who is diagnosed with AD/HD is often made to feel “stupid” or “difficult” because they are unable to learn and do as easily as others.
Whether a child or adult, our psychotherapists do not just treat the person with AD/HD but also develop a psycho-educational and supportive therapy program that includes family, friends and significant others. We stress that AD/HD is a learning disability, which limits one’s ability to process information and regulate behavior. AD/HD is not due to a lack of intelligence. Treatment for AD/HD is based on utilizing the skills and strengths of each individual and incorporating these into each aspect of their life.
Individual, family and group therapy are done in combination with one another. Social skills and parenting skills training, whether in a group or individual setting, is fundamental to treatment success. Augmentative services include school performance evaluations, consultation and collaboration with school personnel and behavioral modification plan development for home & school. Transitions to high school or college can be especially hard for those with AD/HD as well as their families. Specialized learning and behavioral plan development for these specific transition periods is offered and can ease these difficult times.
