Treating Boys with Attention Deficit Disorder
Our Approach to Treating Your Son with Attention Deficit Disorder
We can treat your child who is suffering with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the inability to stay on task, with trouble in controlling emotions and staying still, when compared with the general population. This behavior can hinder his ability to finish his work, and function successfully in society.
If your boy is easily diverted from his schoolwork, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one incomplete task to another, he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Exact causes of ADD (also part of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show association with genetics, nutrition and environment.

Attention Deficit Disorder is one of the most oft-diagnosed problems among adolescents today and so it is imperative to identify this Disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: anxiety, sleep or thyroid problems, depression, unpredicted life change) can closely ADHD-like behaviors
Because of the great level of distraction with ADD leading to poor academic performance and low self-esteem, a large percentage of boys with it will fail to finish high school. While he may not completely outgrow his symptoms, your boy can certainly learn strategies for success.
You don’t want ADD or ADHD to control his life!
Treating children who are dealing with ADD, school underachievement, disrespect, relational conflict, and behavioral/emotional struggles is the very reason for our existence.
