Being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be a difficult time for children and their families. Having ADD/ADHD can contribute to problems at school, interacting with others, and low self-esteem. At Polaris, we work with you and your child to help them through the process of adjusting to their diagnosis.

Some symptoms of ADD in children can be:

  • Poor performance in school
  • Avoiding homework and studying
  • Poor organizational skills
  • Social difficulties
  • Not following directions
  • Low attention span
  • Can not sit still
  • Impulsivity
