ADHD Therapy at Ananya is a combination of 4 or more therapies – Executive Function Training, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Social Skills Therapy and Occupational therapy & Sensory Integration. ADHD Therapy is designed to help each child with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) overcome their challenges. Each of the therapies helps the child in overcoming their specific challenges. Occupational therapy helps children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) helps with their hyperactivity and inattention. Sensory Integration therapy helps them manage their sensory challenges. Social Skills and Group Therapy helps them learn to communicate in a group setting. Cognitive Behaviour therapy helps them with managing their impulsivity and difficult behaviours. The combination of the therapies will be based on each child's needs. We use evidence-based techniques and a variety of innovative therapeutic methods which give effective results and measurable outcomes.
It is always best to start these therapies as early as possible without wasting any time. A lot of parents tend to resort to waiting for the child to outgrow the symptoms thereby wasting a lot of time.
What is ADHD and What are the Symptoms of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?
ADHD is a common condition that’s caused by differences in the brain. Children or teens with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)have trouble with focus. But some are also hyperactive and impulsive.
People with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) have trouble with a group of key skills known as executive function. And that creates challenges in many areas of life, from school to everyday living. For example, children with ADHD often struggle to get organized, follow directions, and manage their emotions.
ADHD isn’t a matter of laziness or willpower — that’s one of many myths about it. In fact, people with ADHD are often trying as hard as they can to focus and keep their impulses in check.
The main symptoms of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) are trouble with focus, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. People can have them to varying degrees, and not everyone has all three. The stereotype of kids with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is that they’re always in motion, they’re impulsive and hyperactive, and that they act out at home and at school. But some children with ADHD never have those symptoms. They only struggle with focus or attention.
If you suspect that your child is showing symptoms of ADHD, please book an appointment with our Child Psychologist for a consultation.
