Making the decision to seek evaluation and possible treatment for your child’s ADHD-related issues can be a very difficult decision. No parent wants their child to be labeled as “different”, but leaving ADHD undiagnosed and untreated can have very harmful effects on your child’s life in terms of behavior, mental health, and even physical health.
There is lots of evidence that appropriate evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment with carefully chosen and optimized medication brings many benefits to a child’s life. Some of the many benefits documented by research with adequate treatment of ADHD include:
- Improved academic performance and higher academic test scores
- Better self-esteem
- Improved cooperation
- Less anxiety in late adolescence and early adulthood
- Less depression in late adolescence and early adulthood
- Less substance abuse/addiction in late adolescence and early adulthood
- Improved relationships and functioning in the home
We want to help rewrite the narrative and change the stereotypes often assigned to patients with ADHD. If your child is experiencing ADHD-like symptoms, be encouraged that they can live a happy, healthy life.
What Parents Have to Say
“Thankful for the family at Greenville ADHD. Dr. Woods has not only been patient with her patient, but also with his parents, as we continue to learn about our journey with ADHD+
My son has been a patient at Greenville ADHD for several years. He has struggled with ADHD and anxiety for years. The staff at Greenville ADHD have been WONDERFUL! They are always available for us anytime we have any type of issue or question. I’m really not sure where we would be without them. Words cannot express how much they are appreciated!
We have been with Dr. Woods for over 6 years, and we will not go to another doctor. We would pay double to see her versus anyone else because she’s that good. My sons absolutely love her and actually look forward to going to see her. They don’t do this with any other doctor (they hate doctors appointments) but they are so excited when they see us pull up to her office. She’s great with kids and knows how to interact with them. Simply put, she knows her stuff!
For the first time, a doctor listened to my son! It has made all the difference in the world. Thank you, Dr. Woods.
Everyone who we have encountered [at Greenville ADHD] has been welcoming and caring. They have supported us through it all. Their positive approach to challenges in life with ADHD is not something you get at a typical doctor’s office. Our experience gave my son the tools to make his dreams come true. It truly takes a village. I am thankful to have all of them as a huge part of our village.
