Attention Deficit Disorder
Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder or (ADD) include; overlooking or missing details, difficulty listening when spoken to, having difficulty following through with instructions at school or work, having organizational issues, regularly losing things, easily distracted by unrelated thoughts or stimuli, forgetful. If you also suffer from the following symptoms then you may be dealing with ADHD. Symptoms include; fidgeting or squirming when sitting, unable to stay in your seat, running or climbing when the situation is inappropriate for such activities, feeling restless, unable to engage in activities quietly, talking nonstop, or interrupts others frequently.
In order to be properly diagnosed with ADHD, you may want to visit your doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist. Depending on the case, ADHD can be best treated using a combination of medications or neurofeedback and psychotherapy. If you have a history of trauma, psychotherapy could help alleviate symptoms of ADHD if symptoms are directly related to the trauma experienced.
Here at Aspire, we often use Brainspotting and CBT or play therapy to treat ADHD. EMDR is rarely used because a level of focus is required that is usually too difficult for these clients.
