Help With Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder - ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood, but it is not always recognized until well into adulthood. One of the typical ways in which ADHD goes undiagnosed is when a child is bright and capable but struggles to apply those attributes and turn them into successful performance.

Sometimes the child can temporarily overcome these difficulties through sheer intellectual giftedness or external structure and help imposed by parents and teachers. As the child turns into an adult and the demands increase, such as when faced with a demanding workplace or advanced education, the deficits become more apparent and impairing.

Diagnosis of ADHD in adults is difficult because it can be mistaken for a variety of other conditions which look similar, such as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and many others. The way we diagnose this condition at GSWC is in line with the Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance (CADDRA) guidelines.

ADHD can be successfully managed through medication but also psychotherapy. Here at GSWC we offer cognitive-behavior therapy for ADHD aimed at helping individuals be more organized, use their time more effectively, and overcome other common challenges linked to ADHD.
