ResourcED Counseling & Consulting specializes in assessments and therapeutic support for children, teens and their families challenged with Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder (ADHD) and other related deficits such as:
· Impulsive behavior
· Trouble managing emotions
· Poor organization and planning
· Forgetfulness in daily activities
· Poor time management.
While commonly used in conversation, the term Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is no longer used in the mental health community. With the publication of the most recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, available to practitioners in May 2013, ADHD diagnostic criteria was revised into three distinct types, which include many ADD specific symptoms.
ADHD is one of the most common childhood mental health concerns. Early psychological research speculated that children would grow out of certain symptoms, treating ADHD like a phase that maturation would eventually resolve. While the cause of ADHD is still widely debated, we now understand that ADHD is not a phase and has a neurobiological basis. Untreated, incorrectly treated, or undiagnosed, ADHD can greatly affect a child’s life, impacting their self-esteem, relationships and educational success.
ResourcED Counseling & Consulting therapists utilize individualized assessment tools to not only identify areas of struggle, but to also create holistic and personalized success plans.
ResourcED Counseling & Consulting is an active member of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder (CHADD), a national authority on evidence based support for individuals and families with ADHD. ResourcED’s therapists understand that symptoms of ADHD often co-exist with symptoms of other mental health issues and are experts in identifying and treating co-existing concerns such as:
· Self-Harming Behaviors
· Learning Challenges
· Behavioral issues
The ResourcED team is now accepting new clients in West Bloomfield, Royal Oak and also online through e-therapy.
