|Since 2001, we have helped children diagnosed with ADHD and other learning issues excel in school.Many parents have come to us after stimulant medications “stopped working” or are causing side effects. We work with your child’s pediatrician so that instead of your child ending up on higher and higher doses of ADHD medication, your child becomes well behaved and focused often without the need of any ADHD medications.
Our approach to helping kids with ADHD is unique in that we focus on the interfering factors that are causing the attention and focusing difficulties, rather than masking the symptoms of ADHD. Computer programs like Pearson’s Cog Med Program and the IFOCUS program have been proven to have a dramatic positive effect on attention and focusing behaviors.
