Ozark Trails Academy understands that you want to find help now for your teen boy or girl who struggles with Attention Deficit Disorder. Give us a call to learn more about the effective therapies we use at our residential treatment center and boarding school.
What is ADD?
We can help your teen who is struggling with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay on task, with trouble in controlling emotions and staying still, when compared with the general population. This behavior can hinder your teenager’s ability to finish their work, and function successfully in society.
If your troubled teen is easily sidetracked, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one unfinished assignment to another, they may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Precise causes of ADD (also Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show some links with heredity, nutrition and environment.
Because it’s so easy for teens with ADD or ADHD to be distracted, a large percentage fail to finish high school, or don’t get the kind of grades needed to go on to a good college. While your child may not completely outgrow their symptoms, they can certainly learn strategies for success, even as a teenager.
