October is ADHD Awareness Month
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, is a broad term for a condition impacting the ability to focus and pay attention in both children and adults. While hyperactivity is included in the name, it's not always a symptom, particularly in girls and adults. More clients come to LearningRx previously diagnosed with ADHD than any other condition.
If you’ve tried tutoring, stimulant medications or behavior modifications without luck (or if you just want to complement any current interventions), personal brain training can help. Among students who came to LearningRx with ADHD, the greatest deficits were in processing speed, working memory and long-term memory. This shows that kids AND adults with ADHD need an intervention that addresses more than just attention deficits!
