ADHD Therapy

When it comes to ADHD treatment options, there are a many approaches to treatment which can be daunting to understand, especially for parents concerned about the development of their child. We emphasize thorough assessment as the starting point for any effective treatment. The traditional treatment for ADHD emphasizes medication, primarily stimulants. My experience and research indicate that medication should be a final step in treatment, not the first approach tried, for many behavioral disorders, including ADHD and learning problems. 

Additionally, some ADHD patients may respond poorly to medication, and the patient or their parents may object to some of the long-term effects of medication. There are a number of alternative therapies that offer relief from symptoms of ADHD without the use of medications, at all.

Contact us to discuss all your ADHD treatment options. Keep in mind that since every child  and adult with ADHD symptoms is different, and there are different sub-types of ADHD, treatment must be specific and carefully individualized. When you call us, we will listen, and we will work closely with you and your family.

With over twenty-five years of experience working with attention and learning issues, I have the expertise necessary to consult with family members, pediatricians, neurologists, family physicians, and school personnel in order to work out an optimal plan for healing.
