Maybe you have trouble concentrating for a sustained period of time. You may get distracted very easily or lose things often. Perhaps these symptoms cause problems at your work or arguments in your family.
Or maybe you have a child who is fidgety, jumps up in class, talks excessively, and has endless energy. They may have a hard time paying attention, completing homework, get in trouble in school for talking over the teacher, not being able to listen in class and interrupting often. It seems like everything you’ve tried to help them hasn’t worked, and you’re exhausted.
Our expert therapists are here to help you navigate ADHD and live life more effectively.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been proven effective in the treatment of both child and adult ADHD.
ADHD is behaviorally diagnosed, which means that the behavior of the individual is assessed in at least two settings (e.g., school/work and home). Difficulty completing projects, misplacing things, or difficulty sustaining attention are a few symptoms that may be reported.
When ADHD behaviors occur in at least two important areas of life and interfere with one’s life, ADHD is often diagnosed. Unfortunately, ADHD sometimes coexists with other psychological and behavioral problems. Children with ADHD are also prone to being defiant, oppositional or struggle with anxiety and depression. Adults can also experience anxiety and depression as well as difficulty in social settings and the work environment.
The good news is, we can help. New York Behavioral Health professionals use evidence-based practices. Since we use scientifically supported treatments for ADHD, there is good reason to believe you or your child’s problems can begin to improve very soon.
