ADHD Treatment & Counseling
Stephanie Legendre, LPC-S, Registered Play Therapist
Welcome to Katy Child Counseling, where I am dedicated to empowering children and families to navigate the challenges of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). As a counselor specializing in ADHD, I am committed to providing comprehensive support that goes beyond conventional approaches. Let’s delve into what ADHD is, how to identify it in children, and the innovative therapy interventions offered.
ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting children’s ability to focus, control impulses, and regulate their energy levels appropriately. Essentially ADHD is an overload disorder where the child finds it challenging to focus, self-monitor, respond to instructions, and regulate their nervous system. Identifying ADHD involves recognizing persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that interfere with daily functioning. While it’s common for children to exhibit these behaviors occasionally, in ADHD, they occur consistently and significantly impact academic, social, and personal areas of life.
1. LENS Neurofeedback:
LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) is a cutting-edge neurofeedback technique that helps regulate brain activity. By providing real-time information to the brain, LENS assists in optimizing neural functioning, leading to improved attention, focus, and emotional regulation in children with ADHD.
2. Parent Coaching:
Parental involvement is crucial in managing ADHD. Through personalized coaching sessions, parents learn effective strategies to support their child, create structured routines, and foster a positive home environment. Empowering parents enhances the overall success of ADHD therapy.
3. Skills Training:
ADHD counseling involves equipping children with practical skills to enhance their executive functioning. From organizational techniques to time management skills, these interventions empower children to navigate academic and social challenges more effectively.
4. Emotional Regulation Techniques:
Emotional dysregulation often accompanies ADHD. Therapy focuses on teaching children coping strategies and emotional regulation techniques to manage frustration, anxiety, and impulsive reactions, fostering emotional resilience.
At Katy Child Counseling, I recognize the uniqueness of each child and tailor interventions to their specific needs. By combining LENS Neurofeedback, parent coaching, skills training, and emotional regulation techniques, I aim to create a holistic and effective approach to managing ADHD. Together, we can unlock your child’s full potential and pave the way for a brighter future. Contact us today to embark on this transformative journey toward growth and well-being.
