ADHD is one of the most over-diagnosed and misunderstood conditions in teens. Please do not rely on questionnaires administered by your physician or school personnel. Many symptoms of ADHD such as distractibility, hyperactivity, disorganization, absentmindedness, or forgetfulness can actually be symptoms of another disorder such as a learning disability, anxiety or depression. We conduct comprehensive evaluations in order to make sure that these symptoms are actually the result of the neurological condition of ADHD.
If your teen has been properly diagnosed with ADHD, we can help you to know what to do next. Treatment for ADHD does not necessarily involve just medication or therapy. By meeting with one of our expert ADHD clinicians, we will work with you and your teen to first teach you what pieces need to be in place and secondly how to get them in place. ADHD therapy involves working with you as the parent, with your teen’s teachers, and with your teen to collaboratively develop intervention plans so that he/she will excel in school, improve their behavior and reach their highest potential.
