ADHD Counseling in Mt. Pleasant, SC—Counselors, Therapists

ADHD, or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is a condition that can be difficult to understand and manage. The symptoms are varied and sometimes non-specific. The disorder is becoming increasingly more common in children and the American Psychiatric Association estimates that 5 percent of children in the U.S. have ADHD. ADHD significantly affects a child’s ability to maintain focus, concentrate, be organized, and control impulses.

How Do I Know if My Child Has ADHD?

For a child to be diagnosed with ADHD, they must exhibit at least six of the following symptoms for a period of six months or more. The combination of these symptoms generally interferes with the child’s everyday functioning and development. If your child exhibits a number of these behaviors, meeting with a therapist at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling is a good step to take.

  • Often fails to pay attention to details or makes careless mistakes
  • Has difficulty maintaining focus or concentrating
  • Does not listen when spoken to directly
  • Does not follow through on instructions
  • Has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
  • Dislikes and avoids engaging in tasks that require sustained mental effort
  • Often loses things
  • Often becomes easily distracted
  • Has difficulty remaining seated when expected to
  • Talks excessively
  • Has difficulty waiting their turn

Trying to help a child struggling with symptoms of ADHD can easily cause frustration. Without treatment, the disorder can have a negative impact on the child: low grades, self-esteem issues, problems getting along with peers, poor self-image, anxiety, and disciplinary problems at school. 

How We Can Help a Child with ADHD

The therapists at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling are specially trained to help you and the child with ADHD understand the disorder. This is an essential step in learning how to manage impulses and other problematic behavior caused by ADHD. We work with the child to help them strengthen social skills, improve their ability to focus, and build positive peer relationships. Many types of therapies can be used to treat ADHD. Medication is not needed in every case. Behavior therapy is often used to treat children with the disorder. This type of therapy helps to reduce negative behaviors and increase positive ones. Over time, behavior therapy can eliminate problem behaviors entirely. Behavior therapy also gives parents skills and strategies to help their child who has ADHD.

Finally found help for my PPD

★★★★★
I had a hard time finding help after the birth of my daughter. A friend told me about Thriveworks so I added them to my list of counselors to leave a message for. They answered, scheduled an appointment for the next day, and accepted my insurance. I've had three sessions already and just got a call back from one of the other people I called. Can't recommend them enough!!
