Sarasota Attention Deficit Disorder Attorney

Although much more has been learned about Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) in the last two decades, it is still difficult to diagnose. ADD/ADHD shares characteristics with other Children with Learning Disabilities and can be confused with dyslexia.

ADHDTo get an accurate diagnosis, you may need a team of specialists. At Windsor Law Firm, PLLC, education law attorney Jane Windsor understands the challenges of ADD/ADHD because her child has the disorder. Ms. Windsor works with medical and educational experts to provide families with a psychological and educational evaluation of the child. Additional ADD testing may include an EEG to see which part of the brain is not functioning normally. Each case is unique, and we will tailor the testing and our services to your child's needs.

The three main components of ADD/ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity and difficulty controlling one's actions (impulsivity). This can make things difficult for a child with ADD/ADHD in any situation, but the typical school environment is especially hard to handle. Once we get a diagnosis, we will help you get further testing and any accommodations your child needs at school. We can also help you with study skills and learning strategies specifically for ADD/ADHD to help your child succeed in school.

There are three types of ADD/ADHD. In general terms, these are:

  1. ADD/ADHD in the brain's executive center — this type is often very responsive to medication.
  2. ADD/ADHD that is not in the executive center, and not in the brain's visual section — this type is not as responsive to medication but medication may help the resulting anxiety or depression.
  3. ADD/ADHD in the brain's visual section — this type is not responsive to medication, and medication can in fact make the disorder worse. Brain training and learning strategies typically work better than medication.

Regardless of the type of ADD/ADHD and other learning disabilities a person has, there are ways to manage the disorder and improve learning skills. You may need a lawyer's help to get your child's school to work with you, so speak with us as soon as possible.
