We understand how unsettling it is as a parent when your child struggles…
…. How disheartening the parent teacher conferences can be….The complaints from other care givers & neighbors. We understand the nightly problems with homework and the tension in your home. We have seen the problems these children have with friendships and the difficulty following rules. This isn’t what you wanted for your child, but now that it’s here, you shoulder the burden and search for the best solution. We can help.

ADD is difficult to diagnose. It must be distinguished from poor self-discipline, oppositional defiant disorder, lack of respect for authority and more. No one can just look at your child (or you) or administer the parent/teacher questionnaire and establish an accurate diagnosis. Our diagnostics are state of the art and our fees are lower than most.
If ADD is present, we offer all treatments. We pioneered the use of EEG Biofeedback (Neurofeedback) Therapy and have been recognized for our work by our colleagues throughout the country. Although we were among the original researchers in developing this non drug EEG Biofeedback therapy, we do not believe it is the best or only choice for every patient. We recommend caution in bringing your child into a treatment center offering a single approach. Accordingly, we have brought on board outstanding psychiatrists skilled in a conservative medication approach for those people who require this treatment. Furthermore, we have a number of outstanding clinicians providing programs such as social skills training, parenting groups, child therapy, family therapy and much more. We will be there for your family.

ADD/ADHD Testing & Treatment
The Evolution of Testing
There has been a significant improvement in the diagnosis of ADD/LD using QEEG Mapping. Recent research has proven it to be the most accurate test for diagnosing ADD, and it is now an FDA approved technology.
Until QEEG Mapping, ADD and LD have been “rule-out” diagnoses which are prone to error, and heavily reliant upon the doctor’s skills. We are still finding 30% of children wrongly diagnosed with ADD and often unnecessarily.
We do not want to become the biggest, we want to remain the BEST.
