ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) for both adults and children:

 

Children: If your child is experiencing difficulties in school, we can help you understand your child's experience.

 

Utilizing industry standard assessments such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-IV), and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT-III), which are designed to screen and assess for a variety of issues, including learning disabilities, developmental delays, and processing disorders. With these board-recognized tests, we can help paint a comprehensive picture of your child's strengths and areas for improvement.

 

Adults: Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is commonly undiagnosed in adults. It can affect individuals in many domains including work, education, relationships, and even day-to-day tasks.  Some symptoms include difficulty reading, disorganization, trouble starting or completing tasks, and an inability to focus on one topic. It can lead to feeling constantly stressed as responsibilities pile up.

 

 

On their own, none of the symptoms of attention deficit disorder are abnormal. Most people feel scattered, unfocused, or distracted at times. Furthermore, the symptoms of ADD/ADHD are easy to confuse with other problems—including learning disabilities and emotional issues—that require totally different treatments. That’s why it’s important to see a mental health specialist to determine if the symptoms really point to ADD/ADHD.
