Positive Kids is a provider of holistic ADHD treatment for children and their families. We are the creators of a unique model called "LEPS." Our model tackles the complications associated with ADHD with a very high success rate. The acronym stands for LEARNING, EMOTIONAL, PARENTING, SOCIAL skills. We begin by assessing your child’s ADHD symptoms before we go into a more in-depth discovery of what your child’s individual needs are. Once we have determined the initial requirements, we set up a schedule for you & your child, breaking down each part of the program.

I am a parent of two neurodiverse children ( ADHD and ASD).
Frustrated and overwhelmed? Is your closest relationship struggling under the weight of misunderstandings, frustrations and resentments? You would give anything to feel accepted, appreciated and loved again. Or perhaps you’re at a lost about how to parent and support your child who struggles with attention, impulsivity or emotions. Your child may be feeling stressed that they can’t seem to behave in a way they know they should. You may be feeling exhausted and angry that you can’t be the partner or parent you know you can be. These are all typical feelings and experiences for individuals and families impacted by ADHD or autism.

Emotional suffering is painful and lonely. It doesn't have to be. Psychotherapy is talk therapy that promises change through self-awareness. The more understanding we have of ourselves, our feelings, the more choice, fulfillment and peace we have in our lives. Understanding our emotional life contributes greatly to the joy of life. In psychotherapy, we examine our emotional life with the goal of distinguishing functional from dysfunctional patterns of behaviour. Psychotherapy provides a context for close examination of our relational life and can help us uncover relational habits that contribute to our suffering.

ADHD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

You should seek treatment for ADHD if you consistently have difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that interferes with your daily life. Symptoms of ADHD include the inability to sustain attention during tasks, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, being easily distracted, frequent fidgeting or squirming, and talking or interrupting excessively. If these symptoms interfere with your career, academics, or relationships—for example, consistently failing to complete professional projects on time—you should seek an evaluation for ADHD.

How does treatment for ADHD work?

Effective treatment for ADHD often consists of medication, behavioral therapy, and lifestyle changes. Stimulant medications such as Adderall and Ritalin work by altering levels of neurotransmitters in the brain; higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine are known to improve attention and focus. Therapy works by helping people with ADHD understand the condition, discuss their areas of difficulty, and develop behavioral strategies to manage their symptoms. In some cases, modifying one’s diet and exercise can also help improve symptoms.

Are there specific medications for ADHD?

Medications to treat ADHD are generally stimulants, the most common are Adderall and Ritalin. There are two categories of stimulants: Amphetamines include Adderall, Dyanavel, Vyvanse, and Dexedrine, and methylphenidates include Ritalin, Concerta, Daytrana, Focalin, Quillichew, Quillivant, and Metadate. Non-stimulants and antidepressants may be used as an alternative if stimulants aren’t effective or viable for a particular patient.

How long does treatment for ADHD take?

It’s tough to give an exact time frame because everyone varies. In terms of medications, stimulants begin to work very soon after you take them, generally within the hour. It may take time to identify the right medication and dosage, but the medication itself is fast-acting. In terms of therapy, it takes time to develop skills and put them into practice, but you will likely see improvements within a few weeks or months.
