Our program consists of highly accurate evaluations and a broadened range of treatment options for problems of attention and related difficulties.
At our Institute, we prefer not to use the term Attention Deficit Disorder. We do not feel that ADD is either a “deficiency” or a “disorder.” And certainly no one wants to be called either “deficient” or “disordered.”
Instead, we prefer to refer to ADD as Attention “Directing Difficulty.” Not only do we feel that this is a more accurate description of what the problem really is, but it is less demeaning to the individual.
Also, we feel that far too many children, adolescents and adults have been labeled as “ADD” in our society and that medications are being used too freely and too often.
