What makes these camps different is a focus on behavioral modification with an intense connection between the camp, the campers and the parents.</p> Thu, 13 Mar 2014 21:01:01 +0000 Maria Carter & Matthew Long-Middleton 52625 at http://kcur.org Parents, Teens, & ADHD http://kcur.org/post/parents-teens-adhd <p>Why have we seen so many children, teenagers, and adults diagnosed with <strong>Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?</strong></p><p><strong>Symptoms</strong> of ADHD include <strong>lack of attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior</strong>.&nbsp; And for parents with teens, ADHD can be a troubling diagnosis on top of an already difficult period in a child&#39;s life.&nbsp; Many teens have trouble following through on instructions and don&#39;t seem to listen when spoken to directly, but it&#39;s important to know when a teen is just being a teen...or when their condition requires special attention.
