ADHD / ADD

Our Speech Therapists Come to You!

“ADHD is a condition of the brain that affect's a person's ability to pay attention and is most common in school age children. Current research supports the idea of two distinct characteristics of ADHD, inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity.”

Several studies have reported that a greater percentage of children with ADHD are somewhat delayed in the onset of talking than children without ADHD. In addition, students with ADHD are more likely than children without ADHD to have difficulties with memory, reading, social skills and language.

Speech-Language Pathologists play vital roles in the assessment, identification and treatment of persons of all ages with ADHD by virtue of their expertise in identifying and treating communication and related disorders that may co-occur with ADHD.

Speech and language treatments for people with ADHD include providing recommendations for teachers to assist with teaching of new input, following directions, planning and completion of assigned tasks, and focus on individualized language goals such as teaching better communication in specific social situations, and study skills.
