Impulsive….Unable to concentrate….…Distracted
A child with these behaviors may have problems learning and making friends. For such a child, school may be a place to avoid and home is often filled with tension. If this sounds familiar, perhaps The Child Development School at the University of California, Irvine can help.
These programs, which are offered through UC Irvine Health, connect parents’ hopes for their child to real possibilities for growth that can enable lifelong success. Here, children with ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and related conditions can thrive in a supportive environment that fosters both social and academic development through elementary and middle school.
