We can help your boy who is struggling with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay on task, with trouble in controlling emotions and his physical activity, when compared with the general population. This behavior can easily get in the way of his finishing his work, and function successfully in society.
If your son is easily diverted, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one unfinished assignment to another, he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Precise causes of ADD (also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show some genetic links, as well as with diet and environment.
Attention Deficit Disorder is one of the most often diagnosed problems among adolescents today and it is imperative to identify this disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: sleep or thyroid problems, depression, unexpected life change) can also generate ADHD-like behaviors
Because of the great level of distraction with ADD, a large percentage of boys with it will fall far behind in their schoolwork. While he may not completely outgrow his symptoms, your boy can certainly learn strategies for success. You don’t want ADHD to control his life!
A supportive, Christian therapeutic boarding school for adolescent boys struggling with behavioral, emotional or academic issues, a Boys Ranch is here to help your boy learn to resist making destructive decisions, to achieve academically and physically, while learning to accept himself as a special and valuable human being.
Is your son struggling, out of control? Has his behavior changed dramatically within the last year? Boys ranches can help him get on the other side of bad behaviors, anger and self-destruction. The structured lifestyle of our home-like environment will enable him to develop better life attitudes, so that he may face and conquer his problems and challenges.
We make the most of both an accredited distance-learning program as well as alternative methods, since different students learn in different ways, and at different paces. We work very hard on issues and problems … but we also play hard. Our rustic campus will provide plenty of outdoor time for camping, fishing, hunting, equine and other outdoor activities.
