The Attention Deficit Disorders Institute is a highly specialized muli-disciplinary group formed to respond to the complex needs of clients with attentional, social and emotional problems including AD/HD. These difficulties are often associated with learning and behavioral problems. It is essential to sort out which problems have their basis in AD/HD and which do not. Clients may take advantage of the expertise of the entire group in order to design comprehensive diagnosis and a workable treatment plan. The Group consists of experts in learning disabilities and special education, child, adolescent and adult psychiatry, psychology, neuropsychology, art therapy, group, marital and family therapy.
