I’ll never forget the first time I was asked by a parent if I thought their child had ADHD. I had read years of report cards, all saying that the child had a hard time paying attention. I had reviewed all sorts of reports from the child’s teachers and school psychologist which told me the student wasn’t doing their work. Some of the teachers thought that the child had an attention problem. Some thought that the child was lazy and needed to fail before the child would “wake up”. His father thought that his mother was “babying” the child. He thought that if his wife would just “toughen up, his child would outgrow it”. The mother thought that the father was being too harsh and that her child needed medication to get better.
For the next two decades, I led a research team with Dr. Joel Lubar that was dedicated to identifying the neurophysiological symptoms of ADHD, developing a QEEG test for attention, and discovering effective medical, nutritional, and psychological treatments. Along the way, we’ve learned that symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, as well as, inadequate nutrition, sleep, and other lifestyle choices. Our clinic is dedicated to figuring out the specific causes of you or your child’s attention, behavioral and emotional problem and developing a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses each of these issues. I invite you to take the time to discover what we have learned about ADHD and the services we offer.
