Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD)
Research suggests that the underlying cause of the three different variations of AD/HD (Attention Deficit Disorder, Hyperactivity Disorders, Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder) is very similar to that seen in the Autism Spectrum Disorders, to a lesser degree. Individual with AD/HD has difficulty engaging a part of their brain called the frontal cortex. This is the area of the brain allows us to move, pay attention, become a motivated, plan, execute, choose right from wrong, and much more. The frontal lobe of the brain integrates information from various areas of our brain that process sensory information. This is why most people with AD/HD can focus well on highly sensory-stimulating activities such as video games, or when taking medication that increases sensory processing. OYBC can help individuals with AD/HD by identifying which sensory and neurological networks are working inefficiently and provide various types of sensory and cognitive exercises to enhance processing, control, timing, coordination, and cognition. In the end, our goal is to allow the individual to achieve their goals without the use and risks associated with AD/HD medications.
OYBC offers state of the art Drug-Free treatment for adults and children with ADD/ ADHD. Using a wide variety of technologies, we combine high researched techniques to target specific areas of the brain linked to these conditions. One of these technologies if Interactive Metronome- An evidence-based, engaging therapeutic modality that improves cognitive and motor skills. This technology is perfect for patients young and old. Using beats to stimulate auditory pathways within the brain, and visual stimuli for the participant to focus on and interact with, IM addresses critical brain timing skills. Our goal is to improve outcomes in the areas of cognitive, communicative, motor, sensory and academic performance in conditions like ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Stroke, and TBI.
