Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD & ADD)

Because the principles of ABA are behaviorally based, it is very effective in creating positive change with individuals struggling with ADHD and ADD, and other related learning disability.  ADHD & ADD can impact the lives of children, teens, and adults, particularly in the areas of attention, distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. For some, it may mean difficulty following through with tasks, and for others it may lead to disruptive and defiant behavior, affecting relationships with family members, peers, and teachers.

CARE’s behavioral approach to treatment involves teaching increased attention, self-management, emotion regulation, and coping skills. No matter at what age, a behavioral approach to managing relationships, school, and work will teach strategies to cope with deficient areas, while highlighting individual talents that lead to more fulfilling lives.

For students struggling with academics, self-management techniques can be used to help avoid procrastination and complete assignments on time by teaching them to ask for help appropriately and breaking down larger assignments into smaller steps.

CARE can help address the unique challenges of ADD or ADHD in a variety of ways, depending on age and level of function. We offer individualized ABA programs, adaptive skills programs, social skills group, and individual and group counseling to benefit individuals with attention deficit or hyperactivity. We can help determine the best ways to meet your unique needs.
