Finding effective ADD treatment can be daunting, but it need not be. Speaking as a doctor who specializes in treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and as the mother of a son with ADHD, I have seen numerous success stories.
You can thrive and become successful with ADHD. It often requires learning new skills and developing healthy new habits from learning new organizational skills, improving social skills, finding the right medication balance, etc.
The good news is that anyone can learn how to do this, whether you are a parent looking to help your child with ADHD, or a teen or adult suffering from ADHD.
You may falter at first, but that is OK as long as you get back up. Resilience is always rewarded.
With a little application, kids can excel at school and lead bright futures never thought possible. Adults can reinvent themselves, find jobs that compliment their new healthy lifestyle, and build happy, healthy social relationships.
Over time, chlidren, teens, and adults can even begin to appreciate the lessons and gifts of ADHD. Please use the information here to learn how to live well despite your challenges. A new life is possible.
In my clinical opinion, the Total Focus Program is the gold standard of ADD treatment programs. It is an easy to follow ADD treatment guide designed to be used in the comfort of home.
It teaches parents everything about ADHD, how to manage challenging behaviors, and how to improve focus, attention, and grades.
It comes with a free trial, and even includes a parent hotline for those times when you need immediate phone support. No other behavioral program matches this level of support.
I have used it with my own son and his behavior and grades improved dramatically. He reported increased ability to focus and he began to gain more self-confidence. For more information about this program, read my full review here.
Overcoming ADHD is a helpful program that was specifically created for parents of children suffering from ADHD. It teaches parents about ADD/ADHD, how to best help their children, natural treatment options, and perhaps most important: how to retain their sanity during the challenging process.
It comes with free bonus guides including inspirational stories about overcoming adversity, an extended interview with expert Carla Hannaford, a guide on how the brain learns and the importance of play, and more.
Bottom line:: It empowers parents to help their child overcome ADHD in a relaxed ("no need to panic or get overwhelmed") and easy-to-follow fashion.
The How To Conquer ADD/ADHD program is an ADHD treatment program developed by an adult with ADHD. It addresses all of those factors that make ADHD so challenging for adults.
It helps adult ADHD sufferers get organized, maintain a schedule, job, manage money, maintain household responsibilities, resolve relationship problems, raise children while suffering with ADHD, how to avoid substance abuse or other impulsive or addictive behaviors, etc.
important to note that this guide, particularly the sections about
getting organized and money management, are helpful for most adults, not
just those with ADHD.
The most common treatment for ADHD is ADHD medication (Ritalin, Adderall, etc.). While medication can be effective from some, they are also powerful stimulants that have drawbacks including some potentially nasty side effects (nausea, headaches, insomnia). These meds often become less effective over time as the body develops tolerance, and their use can result in dependence and addiction.
My son did not tolerate Ritalin and Adderall very well, so I tried ADD natural remedies that are all-natural, plant-based supplements and he and I found them to be as effective as Ritalin and Adderall.
In addition, there are other methods that are often an important part of any ADHD treatment plan. The ADHD diet, ADHD behavior modification, neurofeedback for ADHD, and adult ADHD coaching are some of the best ADHD treatments.
