This is the largest section of the site.
In order to treat ADHD, we must understand what it is that we are treating. You will find a lot of information abou nearly all aspects of the complex condition. It is also the most common of all the neurological conditions, affecting approximately 10% of any given population.
There are also a lot of articles that demystify the intricacies of ADHD.
The next part of this section is all about "Treatment." This too is a vast topic. I have used our Basic Treatment Wheel as the structure for this part. There are 8 different components to our wheel, which all have at their core Powerful Affirming Love.
The final part is a great illustration of those intricacies - the "Co-occurring Conditions." No one only has ADHD, at least three other conditions run alongside, usually as a result of ADHD.
I have divided the co-occurring conditions into 7 sections. You can explore Mood Disorders, Behaviour Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Tic Disorders, and Miscellaneous Disorders
