Brain Balance Achievement Center of Wexford Helps Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
How ADHD Impacts Your Child
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that causes children to struggle with paying attention, being extremely active, and acting impulsively. As these students struggle with daily activities, such as sitting still, focusing on instruction, staying organized, and waiting their turn, this disorder can affect children behaviorally and academically. For a child to be diagnosed with ADHD, symptoms needs to have affected the child’s daily life in at least two settings (school and home) for a period of 6 months.
The right hemisphere of the brain regulates social behavior, impulsivity, and attention, so ADHD is the result of decreased right brain activity. Decreased right brain activity causes inappropriate social behaviors, impulsive actions, and lack of attention for children with ADHD. The best child ADHD program addresses the child’s specific type of ADHD through a natural, whole-child approach.
There are 3 different types of ADHD: inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type, and combined type:
- Inattentive Type - Children struggle to focus on tasks and activities.
- Hyperactive-Impulsive Type - Children struggle with the constant need to be active and with the tendency to act without thinking.
- Combined Type - Children struggle with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

The ADHD Program at Brain Balance Achievement Center of Wexford
After completing a personal assessment, the Brain Balance Achievement Center of Wexford is able to determine the best way to address your child’s needs and develop their personalized program. Every child with ADHD is unique, and this assessment identifies deficits in functions or skills your child may have to allow us to focus on their individual needs instead of employing a one-size-fits-all solution. Our integrated approach to ADHD in children includes a robust program that includes sensory motor training, academic activities, nutrition plans, and at-home exercises. The carefully structured and coordinated combination of the program elements helps establish proper brain and body function leading to a reduction or elimination of negative symptoms and behaviors, and improves the ability to learn academically, socially and emotionally.
