Sarasota AD/HD Children’s Attorney

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

To get an accurate diagnosis, you may need a team of specialists. At Windsor Law LLC, education law attorney Jane Windsor understands the challenges of ADD/ADHD because her Childrennow thirty year old daughter was diagnosed in second grade with the disorder. From this experience Ms. Windsor first learned to work with medical and educational experts. She can guide families to obtain the necessary psychological and educational evaluation of the child. Each case is unique, so testing and our services are tailored to your child's needs.

The three main components of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity and difficulty controlling one's actions (impulsivity). This can make things difficult for a child with 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 ADHD to help your child succeed in school through our Annual Partnership Program.

There are at least three types of ADHD. In general terms, these are:

  1. Inattentive Type - A person with this type must have at least six of these nine symptoms, and very few of the symptoms of hyperactive-impulsive type:
