ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental childhood disorders.
ADHD often begins in childhood and continues through adolescence and adulthood. Inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity are the key behaviors in ADHD. Those diagnosed with ADHD can have one or both behaviors. No two individuals with a diagnosis of ADHD are the same or present with the same symptoms.
Do you have difficulty paying attention or sustaining attention? Are you easily distracted? Do you wait until the last minute to start and complete projects and tasks? Do you overlook or miss details and make careless mistakes? Do others often think you’re not listening or you fail to follow through on instructions? Are you overactive and often act without thinking? Are you constantly in motion or “on the go”? Are you so disorganized that you lose belongings?

More than two-thirds of those diagnosed with ADHD have at least one co-existing condition that is overshadowed by the symptoms of ADHD or may be causing their ADHD. This may include mood disorders like anxiety or depression, learning disorders, or sleep disorders. Starting with a comprehensive assessment will guarantee the best approach to gather all necessary information and recommend accurate and effective treatments for you or your child
ADHD has traditionally been treated with medication. There are also many alternative therapies offered by our clinic including neurofeedback and neurovisual training. According to the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research, there are 10,000 children being treated by neurofeedback in the United States and about 80% have an attention deficit condition. The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes neurofeedback as a tier one level treatment for ADHD. The goal of neurofeedback for ADHD is to teach the patient to produce the brain-wave patterns associated with focus. Neurofeedback can help increase attention and decrease symptoms of ADHD like impulsivity, distractibility and acting out.
treatment: neurovisual training
Neurovisual training can be very beneficial for those with ADHD. Your visual skills can be a major factor of your attention difficulties. Neurovisual training can help improve on this by working on things like eye tracking, fixation, focus change, binocular fusion and visualization.
