ADHD IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
ADHD IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Hope for ADHD in Children and Adolescents
In recent years, much has been gained in our understanding of ADHD and how it affects children and adolescents. Often first observed as a disorder that affects performance in school and a child’s ability to learn effectively, it also can greatly affect their capability to regulate their emotions, make effective decisions, establish and maintain healthy peer relationships, and more. For those who have ADHD, its effects pervade and touch each aspect of their lives.
Our Approach to Help and Healing
Treatment can make significant differences in a relatively short amount of time. Sometimes occasional engagement with a counselor over a longer period of time can also help a child or adolescent learn ways to manage better their ADHD, resulting in a healthy, satisfying, creative and engaging life.
Several of the counselors at Covenant Counseling have experience in helping children, adolescents, and their families better understand, engage, and treat ADHD.
