Orlando ADD/ADHD Counseling
Are you a parent who has an ADD or ADHD teenager and you no longer know what to do with them? As their parent you cannot understand why they cannot reach their full potential and instead they keep using bad judgment when it comes to the choices they make in their life.
What is ADD/ADHD?
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) are brain disorders that appear in early childhood that sometimes follow them into adulthood. Teenagers who have these disorders have a very short attention span, are easily distracted by their surroundings and are extremely disorganized. ADD/ADHD teenagers also struggle with impulse control, are seen as an underachiever in school, can have interpersonal problems in relationships and tend to have bad judgment when it comes to their social lives by hanging out with the wrong people.
Who Needs Orlando ADD/ADHD Counseling?
Since teenagers with ADD/ADHD have impulse control problems and get easily bored; they go seeking for something new and exciting in their lives. As a result, they have a higher risk of using drug and alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancy, dropping out or skipping school, and having legal issues. All of these risks can have long term effects on their lives.
Also, ADD and ADHD not only affects those who have been diagnosed with it; but, everyone in the family. It causes tension and fighting within the family unit. Parents become frustrated because they are constantly fighting with their child to do their homework and chores. Siblings are constantly battling with them for their parent’s attention since they are not viewed as a “problem child.”
