Many parents painfully know all about ADD and ADHD, but not all parents know how to get help for troubled teens dealing with severe ADD and ADHD. The best information on ADD and ADHD points to the reality that Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is the root of many issues leading to the development of "troubled teens". In many cases, if you follow the path of ADD and ADHD you will find troubled teens associated with it.
At Zion Educational Systems we provide parents with help for issues related to ADD and ADHD. The first step toward helping parents to understand ADD and ADHD is to state, "the good news is that "its not all bad news!" Many of our brightest and most successful people deal with ADD and ADHD. As teenagers become adults ADD and ADHD can become "gifts" and "talents" that lead to extraordinary achievements. As teenagers, before the brain is completely matured, these two issues can be horrible. But as the adult brain is at full capacity, and the young adult has developed emotional intelligence, ADD and ADHD can become the straw that stirs the drink of great success.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a neurobiological disorder. It is characterized by developmentally inappropriate impulsivity, inattention, and in some cases, hyperactivity. Although individuals with this condition can be very successful in life, without appropriate identification and treatment, it could cause serious consequences. These consequences may include school failure, depression, conduct disorder, failed relationships, and substance abuse. Early identification and treatment are extremely important.
ZES represents therapeutic schools and programs that effectively combine therapy, experiential learning, academics and behavioral modification to help troubled teens overcome issues such as Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. We have found that often what appear to be the primary issues with troubled youth are actually symptoms of the real problem, which is ADD and ADHD masked by low self esteem, depression, and anxiety. All of which can contribute to problems in school, substance abuse and out of control behavior.
