Since 2001, we have helped children diagnosed with ADHD excel in school.
Many parents come to us after the stimulant medications "stop working" or are causing side effects.We work 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. Comuputer Programs like Pearson's Cog Med and the IFocus have been proven to have a dramatic positive effect of attention and focusing behaviors.
We begin with an assessment of learning and behavior issues and then help with the development an IEP or 504 plan that actually works. The end result is that your child's ability to manage his behavior and to attend focus will not wear off like with medication.

"Hello i’m new to the group and I need help! First I’m a single mother and my 7 year old son has
ADHD combined type and has a learning disability. He was diagnosed when he was 4. He started
medicationlast December with 18 mg that didn’t work so he went to 27 mg that didn’t work then
he went to 36 mg and he was fine until he started not eating and losing weight. So his doctor took him back down to 27 mg and 5 mg of ritalin after lunch. With all of this he still is all over the place and its driving his teachers and I crazy. Yes he has a IEP and a behavioral plan inside his IEP. What am I to do?"
