Dr. Boland evaluates children, adolescents and adults for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. There are three types of AD/HD
1) Predominantly Inattentive type (used to be called ADD),
2) Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Type, and 3) Combined Type (Inattentive, hyperactive and Impulsive). Most insurance companies will cover both the evaluation and treatment of AD/HD.
In treatment, individuals with AD/HD may learn skills to improve self-discipline and self-control. Treatment almost always includes psychotherapy to learn coping skills to reduce and sometimes eliminate the symptoms of AD/HD. For children, behavioral family psychotherapy is typically recommended that includes both parents if possible and the child. If medication is warranted, Dr. Boland will work with your current physician to help you get proper medical treatment or if you like, refer you to a local physician who has an excellent record of patient satisfaction.
