Are You Struggling With Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?

Children or adults diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can experience issues at home, school, work, and extracurricular activities. These issues result from their persistent inattention or hyperactivity, making it difficult to focus. This difficulty focusing, staying on task, and sitting still may present particular issues in education or work settings.

Available Treatment Options

Counseling interventions for people with ADHD include developing self-esteem, as peer-to-peer relationships may suffer from trouble paying attention. It also includes conflict resolution, easing frustrations from peers, parents, and teachers that may arise due to inattention. And, finally, motivation to increase a child or adult’s confidence in completing tasks that they may be hesitant to do due to a history of failure. Therapists guide in other counseling interventions that may include practicing time management skills and using mindfulness techniques to help with impulse control.
