Do you -- or someone you love-- have trouble staying focused, keeping track of things, being on time or managing interruptions? If you're concerned about a youngster, is s/he smart but getting mediocre grades? Does s/he daydream, take too long to complete homework, forget things frequently? Does s/he blurt out answers precipitously? Or leap before s/he looks? These are problems everyone has at times, but if these things have been happening for a long time, happen very often and are severe enough to impair a person's natural ability to function, it could be ADHD.
ADHD is a complex neurobiological condition, often inherited, that can wreak havoc on a person's learning, behavior, self-esteem, career and relationships. The good news is that, with the right help, one can harness ADHD traits, use them creatively and go from chaos to calm, symptomatic to successful.
In developing my specialty, I combined my commitment to excellence in clinical practice with a longstanding interest in brain science, trauma healing and family therapy. It makes for a winning combination of support, inspiration and pragmatic strategies to help children and adults improve their lives.
