What is ADHD?
ADHD involves your child’s inability to stay focused on a given task long enough to absorb the important information required for learning.
Imagine if you were listening to a conversation or a lecture and were only able to audibly hear every other word? This would inhibit your ability to understand the full conversation, and this type of issue can make it incredibly difficult for your child to learn the core components of any given lesson while in school.
ADHD is technically referred to as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and can be devastating for a child, especially if they are wrongfully medicated to improve the issue or if they do not receive the proper support required to create a lasting solution.
The inability to focus for extended durations can have an impact on both social and academic scenarios and come with a wide-range of implications. A child who suffers from ADD or ADHD may become disruptive in a controlled setting like a classroom, and such impulsive behavior can often get them into trouble. Grades often decline as a direct result of their inability to focus and common solutions to this issue often result in medications being administered. Children displaying these symptoms are frequently given medication to help them correct what is assumed to be a chemical imbalance.
Medication can, when properly administered, help to reduce classroom disruptions, but are only a temporary solution to the issue. Medications can cause insomnia, weight loss and other behavioral side effects. This approach does not offer a permanent solution and requires ongoing treatment to keep the effects of ADHD to a minimum.
Also worth noting is the fact that many children who do express ADD/ADHD symptoms may not truly have the diagnosable form of the disorder. In these cases, medicating the child can make the situation worse and setback the future development of your child.
For example, a child with a learning disability such as an auditory processing disorder, may exhibit symptoms similar to ADD/ADHD. Medicating this child for ADD can complicate the issue and will not alleviate it.
Common ADHD/ADD Symptoms
If your child is displaying some of the following symptoms, it may mean that they are suffering from ADHD/ADD:
- Ongoing difficulty following instructions
- Easily overwhelmed with tasks and assignments
- Poor handwriting
- Poor eye-control
- Difficulty maintaining extended focus
- Moods including anger, anxiety or boredom
- Behavioral issues such as aggression, fidgeting and hyperactivity
How Learning Technics Can Help
It’s important to keep in mind that an ADHD/ADD diagnosis isn’t the end of the world. Many children who initially receive this diagnosis will ultimately live happy and successful lives.
Still, it’s incredibly important that parents decide on early intervention so that academic issues and persistent behavioral problems don’t create long-term complications for your child. When early intervention occurs, dramatic improvements can be made both at home and in school.
Our approach is called Physio-Neuro Therapy and allows us to naturally strengthen your child’s capacity to concentrate. Our techniques are entirely organic and non-invasive.
Physio-Neuro Therapy involves personalized, one-on-one sessions with trainers who implement highly-coordinated and proven exercises, which gradually improve your child’s ability to focus as a result. Our therapy leads to long-term results both at home and at school and is totally customized toward the preferences and symptoms of your child. Since every child is different, personalizing this approach is an important part of our process and often leads to dramatic improvements in the life and academic success of your child.
In additional to greatly assisting neurological processes like concentration, our Physio-Neuro Therapy program also provides a framework where behavioral modifications can be successfully taught and implement in real-time.
Twenty different Life Management Concepts are instructed during our personalized sessions where we curate teaching scenarios conducive to profound improvements in both daily skills and academic successes. As the training continues, these Life Management Concepts begin to expand beyond our training and into the student’s daily life.

We now know that neuroplasticity allows for the brain to constantly remodel and change throughout one’s life. The brain adapts and develops when provided with different environments and stimulation and our use of Physio-Neuro Therapy, over the course of 30 years in both public and private settings, has helped to substantiate this finding time and time again.
Our program is adapted specifically to the needs of children exhibiting ADHD/ADD symptoms and allows us to naturally enhance areas of concentration and behavior that are crucial for your child’s long-term success.
All brains contain what are known as juvenile cells that when stimulated by specific neurological practices and exercises allow for the brain to strengthen areas that are currently weak. By focusing on these exercises to both stimulate and develop the brain, our program effectively improves a child’s concentration while dramatically increasing their ability to absorb information and enhance learning in an effective way.
This often leads to improved behavior, grades and overall academic performance, as well as a notable boost to self-esteem and general outlook. Physio-Neuro Therapy doesn’t only assist with academic and emotional well-being, it also allows your family to communicate more effectively and come together in meaningful ways. The at-home components of our program allow you to become an active part of your child’s transformation.
