What causes ADHD

What is the brain basis for ADHD?

Research now believe that children with ADHD do not have a disorder. What they do have is a delay of the pre-frontal cortex. The pre-frontal cortex is the front part of the brain that is responsible for goal setting and inhibitions.

ADHD Brain Study National Institute of Medical Health

If you are concerned about the speech and language development of your school-age child, please contact your child’s classroom teacher so that a screening referral can be filled out. Once the Speech Language Pathologist at your school receives this referral, she will complete an observation and contact you regarding further testing/therapy. Depending on the type and severity of the speech or language concerns, your child may receive service through RTI (response to intervention), or an evaluation may be opened to determine eligibility for an IEP (individualized education plan).
