ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) disrupts the central nervous system and can make life complicated. If you have ADHD, you may feel as if you live in a world that wasn’t designed to help you succeed.

Most people with ADHD begin to struggle with their symptoms in school, although they don’t always receive a diagnosis.

ADHD in the Classroom
Each year, 6.1 million kids are diagnosed with ADHD. Navigating ADHD symptoms in school makes it doubly hard for children and teens to succeed in an environment that feels overwhelming, and like it wasn’t built for them.
Having the right support is key to their success both in and out of the classroom. An integrative team of holistic doctors and professionals will provide a comprehensive treatment plan to optimize each factor for success — both inside the classroom and out.
In the classroom, symptoms of ADHD may look like:
- Losing or forgetting assignments
- Not finishing homework
- Understanding the material, but neglecting to turn in assignments
- Problems organizing work
- Spacing out in class
- Struggling with details
- Blurting out answers, talking a lot
- Appearing not to respect others
- Trouble waiting their turn

The Integrative Approach to ADHD
There are 3 main treatment options once you or your child are diagnosed with ADHD. You and your integrative medicine provider will work together to determine which is most effective for you or your child. Approaches include:
Medication - Stimulants or non-stimulants can help manage focus and attention by blocking out distractions.
Behavior therapy - Time-management and organization techniques for children, parents, and individuals.
Lifestyle and diet changes - Functional therapies to treat ADHD naturally, or to maximize the effectiveness of medication.
While it’s tempting to label one approach as the best way to treat ADHD, remember that each individual’s behavioral issues are unique, and the goal is to find the most effective approach—or combination of approaches—that works best to support them.

Each patient diagnosed with ADHD receives personalized care from holistic doctors, and may benefit from treatment options including, but not limited to:
