adhd dude follows the american academy of pediatrics treatment guidelines for adhd. parents are the first step in this process.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (APA) treatment recommendations for ADHD:
(Children under 6) Parent Training followed by medication management.
(Children 6 and up) Parent Training in conjunction with medication management.
ADHD Dude offers a significantly reduced fee for in-person sessions with the understanding that these sessions will be filmed for professional development trainings. (Aside from possibly first names) no identifying information will be used, and the footage will not be on ADHD Dude social media.
Parent Training is the first step of time and cost-effective ADHD treatment. Please note that individual therapy for kids is not a recommended treatment per the guidelines of the AAP and no form of “talk therapy” has been shown to be effective in treating ADHD-related challenges.
I suggest that families start Parent Training through utilizing the webinars in the ADHD Dude Membership Site. This provides the opportunity to watch the webinars on your own time and implement strategies. Typically, I suggest parents implement strategies prior to setting up an appointment with me as this will save you time and money. Learn more about Parent Training offered through the ADHD Dude Membership Site. Several thousand families are members of the membership site and have implemented the strategies with great results.
If you are not interested in following the APA treatment guidelines mentioned above I will not be able to work with you. Additionally, if your child is currently unmedicated and you are unwilling to have a discussion about the long-term outcomes for people with ADHD who go unmedicated I will not be able to work with you.
Fee for in-person sessions (consent to be filmed required):
$140 for 60-minute session
$70 for 30-minute session
Please contact my assistant to schedule an in-person appointment at the ADHD Dude office in Ventnor, New Jersey. Prior to your appointment we will discuss if the appointment should be for you, or if your child should be included in the appointment. I look forward to meeting you.
