Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD, ADHD
As most people are aware, there is an explosion of interest in children who can’t seem to pay attention. They are constantly restless or who are highly intelligent but lag behind in academic performance. The use of Ritalin has increased dramatically with both children and adults. There is a growing concern about the side effects (i.e. anxiety, tic disorders) associated with drug treatment.
There is good reason to believe that many of these conditions actually reflect several physical conditions that can be effectively treated without medication. Difficulty paying attention can be related to a number of factors. Including developmental delays, head injuries, specific neurological patterns, perceptual integration difficulties, emotional problems and depression.
Getting proper treatment can help your child manage their ADHD/Austim symptoms and feel better about themselves.
