ADD - ADHD

Symptoms of ADD - ADHD: lack of attention to detail, careless mistakes in school work, easily distracted, forgetful or appears to not listen when spoken to, doesn't follow instructions, fails to complete school work or chores, has difficulty organizing tasks and personal belongings, dislikes concentration-intensive activities (such as schoolwork), has difficulty sitting still, fidgets and squirms, talks out of turn or excessively in academic settings, high energy level (sometimes associated with risky behavior), interrupts frequently, intrudes into conversations or games, acts or speaks impulsively, and displays immaturaty socially.


If your teen is displaying symptoms of ADD - ADHD, it is very important
that you seek treatment. A teen with ADD - ADHD is at risk for developing other
mental disorders, such as antisocial personality disorder, mood disorders,
and substance use disorders, in adulthood if left untreated. Teens with ADD - ADHD
are also at risk for school-related problems, substance abuse,
legal problems and injuries (to self or others), sexually transmitted diseases,
and suicide. But, when caught early, treatment of ADD - ADHD can be successfull.

It is often necessary to place teens with ADD - ADHD in a therapeutic boarding school setting. We have information on many treatment centers that have had success in treating ADD - ADHD. Contact us so that we can find the right setting for your child.
