ADD/ADHD Interventions

CanAm Interventions works with many young adults and adults with early childhood diagnoses with ADD/ADHD. We all know kids who can’t sit still, who never seem to listen, who blurt out inappropriate comments, or don’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them.

Our team at CanAm Interventions has allot of experience with ADD/ADHD adolescents or adults that suffered with drug or alcohol addiction and behaviors issues that comes out in many ways.

Working with families that struggle with their loved one can be very challenging. At CanAm Interventions, it is common for our professional team to help families manage these cases. It is also very important to intervene on young adults earlier than later in their lives to provide the best evidence treatment plan to start building internal resources in learning to understand their disorder.

While it’s normal for kids to forget their homework, daydream during class or act without thinking, inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. ADHD makes it difficult for a person to inhibit their spontaneous responses, including everything from movement to speech to assertiveness.

Some children with ADHD may be constantly in-motion, bouncing off the walls and disrupting others around them. Other children with ADHD may sit quietly, with their attention miles away.

There are three primary characteristics of ADHD: Inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity, though all three aren’t always prominent in one child.

Children with ADHD may:

  • Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
  • Appear not to be listening when spoken to
  • Constantly fidget and squirm
  • Talk excessively
  • Act without thinking
  • Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
  • Have a quick temper or “short fuse”

Whether or not your adolescents or adults symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. Adolescents or adults can’t focus or control themselves or get into trouble at school often find it hard to make friends. These frustrations can later lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family.

Treatment can make a dramatic difference in your child’s symptoms. With the right support, your adolescents or adults can get on track for success in all areas of life.
