Alternatives to Medication for the Treatment of ADD/ADHD

Children and adults are being diagnosed as ADD/ADHD with greater frequency and are most often given medication for the treatment of their symptoms. This concerns us at the American Institute of Learning and Cognitive Development, Inc. We find that many people are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD when that is not really the problem. We also are concerned that the first treatment option that is used is medication. We believe that there are more effective treatment options that will get the results that people want without having be on medication the rest of the person’s life.

Sometimes the problem really is ADD/ADHD, but frequently the problem is due to inefficiencies in some of the person basic thinking skills. In either situation there are two effective alternatives available to help the person. One alternative is basic thinking skills training. This helps the person be more efficient in his thinking and results in the person being able to focus and stay on task longer. It allows the person to do the things he needs to do and get the results that he wants without a lot of stress and angst. Procrastination becomes a thing of the past.

The other alternative is neurofeedback. This is a process by which the brain gets the feedback it needs to make necessary adjustments in its own brainwaves. When this occurs the brain is able to function at a much higher level and symptoms begin to disappear. People are able to concentrate better, sleep better, calm down hyperactivity, stay on task, accomplish things that use to be impossible for them and generally relax. The results become permanent and the person is freed from the symptoms that use to plague him.
