Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, otherwise known as AD/HD or ADD, is a developmental disability that impacts a person’s ability to stay attentive beginning as early as childhood. Someone with ADHD may display symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Here at the Therapeutic Literacy Center, we make it our job to teach and strengthen your child’s skills that lead to academic success.

AD/HD is one of the most common disorders displayed by children with symptoms and severity varying from child to child. There are many symptoms that a child might display if they have AD/HD. Call the Therapeutic Literacy Center today if your child is displaying these signs of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder:

  • Difficulty paying attention at both school and home
  • Does not seem to listen when spoken to
  • Is easily distracted by outside stimuli
  • Often fidgets when trying to remain still or while holding objects
  • Often loses materials that are necessary for daily tasks
  • May talk excessively
  • Often hyperactive and “on the go”

Not all children with AD/HD exhibit all of these signs with a degree that is easily noticeable. Therefore, AD/HD may go undiagnosed since children tend to have a lot of energy and may not always want to pay attention in school. That is why it is very important to get your son or daughter evaluated if these signs are prominent in their behavior. The Therapeutic Literacy Center offers both one-on-one sessions and small group programs to work with your child and create a plan that’s constantly changing to fit the child’s current needs.

Although the biggest sign of attention deficit disorder is hyperactivity, not all children display this symptom and if not diagnosed, your child may struggle in school without the help they need. This can cause serious problems both in school and at home. At the Therapeutic Literacy Center, we use personalized programs to help your child get back on track and perform their best. If your child is displaying signs of AD/HD, call us to schedule a free consultation.
