Concerned About Your Child’s Performance?
Emotional Problems such as sadness, worry, fear, and anger can drain a child’s motivation to learn. Family tension, peer conflicts, and drugs and alcohol can hinder healthy development.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) includes poor concentration, impulsivity, disorganization (ADD), and often hyperactivity. ADHD is the most widely diagnosed childhood disorder. Some think it is diagnosed too readily. Correctly diagnosing ADHD means ruling out other problems. Busy professionals often overlook this step.
Learning Disabilities (LD) can occur even in children with high intelligence. When a LD exists along with ADHD or ADD, children have greater difficulty in the classroom. The key is to work with strengths, not just address weaknesses.
Achieving long-term improvement for children with emotional problems, ADHD, or learning problems requires a multi-level approach, including:
Developing rewards and consequences to motivate your child
Consulting with parents, teachers, and pediatricians
Making adjustments in class and home settings to fit your child's learning style
Developing more successful coping skills
A range of tools are used to help understand the causes of your child’s performance difficulties.
