What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

There is a common misconception that ADHD is treatable only with a variety of medications and stimulant solutions. While these are effective in reducing the severity of ADHD symptoms, they do not correct behaviors. For younger children, especially those under the age of 6, this behavioral approach may be more effective.

When a child suffers from impulsivity and lack of attentiveness due to ADHD, adjusting the way they think about their feelings and behavior can change the way they act. Understanding that the behavior is problematic and then knowing what to do to counteract detrimental actions are two big components of this kind of treatment, which has shown much promise in terms of effectiveness. Sometimes cognitive behavioral therapy for ADHD children is accompanied by medication in a more a comprehensive treatment approach.

As one of the top ADHD coaches in Houston, Dr. Brown believes that treatment is never black and white. There are varying shades to improving the colorful nature of a child’s life. That is why she employs a variety of treatment methods, from behavior therapy to non-stimulant solutions to medication. Along the way, she reinforces the importance of strong family bonds, healthy diet, and a consistent routine that includes exercise. Treating the whole child is essential to shaping positive attitudes and behaviors.
