ADD and ADHD Counseling in Illinois

Living with Attention Deficit Disorder can be frustrating and isolating. It affects attention, memory, and the ability to focus. While ADD and ADHD affect all age groups, these disorders can be particularly impeding for children and young adults. Great Lakes Psychology Group offers treatment options for managing symptoms and restoring order to day-to-day activities for those suffering from ADD/ADHD.

The difference between ADD and ADHD is often misunderstood and can be confused with other disorders, such as anxiety. There are three subtypes of the disorder: primarily inattentive (otherwise known as ADD), primarily hyperactive (otherwise known as ADHD), or a combination of both.

Example of inattentive symptoms include:

  • Persistent difficulty with organization
  • Avoidance of tasks that require sustained focus
  • Difficulty listening or following instructions

Examples of hyperactive symptoms include:

  • Excessive fidgeting
  • Excessive talking
  • Impulsivity

Managing these symptoms is possible. Help is available at Great Lakes Psychology Group. We offer expert evaluation and treatment of ADD/ADHD for all ages. Our newly renovated and conveniently located office in Naperville, IL offers private waiting areas and sound-proofed offices. If you or your loved one are struggling with symptoms of ADD/ADHD, intervention is key in managing the detrimental effects of the disorder.
