What is the New Understanding of ADHD?
Although ADHD has been recognized for more than 100 years, many people think of it as essentially a behavior problem in childhood. Yet many with ADHD suffer not from behavior problems so much but from ongoing problems with focusing their attention, organizing their work, sustaining their effort, emotional regulation, and short-term "working" memory.
It’s time for a new understanding of ADHD...
Our clinic offers an updated and science based perspective on this complex disorder, one that is based on current clinical and neuroscience research. We present a new definition and model of ADHD as essentially a problem with
- the self-management system of the brain.
This system is developmental and mostly subconscious operations, which helps to describe how a child or adult with ADHD can focus very well on a few activities that intensely interest them, yet struggle to focus adequately on most other tasks of daily life.
ADHD often seems
like a problem with Willpower...
BUT, it isn’t …
It is a problem with brain chemistry & development.
