Treating children, adolescents, and young adults

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder & Learning Differences

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a psychological problem that presents itself as a persistent pattern of inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination of these behaviors.  For many children, some degree of fidgetiness, inattentiveness and impulsivity is appropriate.  Therefore, for these problems to be diagnosed as ADHD, they must be out of the normal range for a child’s age and development.  ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood and it affects about 3–5% of school aged children.  

How We Help

Learning disabilities can also leave a pervasive impact on a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive functioning. Our clinicians use effective therapeutic interventions to increase social-emotional functioning.  Essential to the treatment of ADHD learning disabilities is a partnership amongst a child’s therapist, parents caregivers, the child and school officials. 

"Dr. Kassinove has developed effective programs for providing Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to individuals challenged with mental health and/or academic issues. I have referred many individuals to Dr. Kassinove and Therapy West over the years, and consistently receive great feedback for the referrals. As a Psychologist with a private practice and the Executive Director of a school for children with special needs, I have to opportunity to interact with many similar organizations."
