New Hampshire Parents Find a Better Understanding of Their Children Thanks to ADHD Boarding Schools
New Hampshire parents often have many questions and concerns when a child is diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHDH). They may feel embarrassed or misinformed by believing it is solely a parenting issue. This is not one of the only myths associated with ADHD. Other myths include:
Medications Will Cure It: ADHD is a chronic disorder that changes over time rather than going away. Adolescents and adults that successfully learn to organize their lives and use proven techniques to manage their condition may be able to eventually end medication therapy.
My Child Will Grow Out of It: While this used to be a popular belief among doctors and parents, unfortunately, it is not always the case. As many as an estimate of 85% of those diagnosed with ADHD have symptoms into their adult life. Teens with ADHD can live successful, independent lives by making environmental adjustments, taking advantage of their strengths, and learning proper coping skills.
ADHD is caused by poor parenting: ADHD is a brain-based syndrome having to do with the way the brain communicates and regulates neurotransmitters. Poor parenting does not cause the disorder. Since ADHD could be challenging to manage, however, inconsistent parenting could worsen the symptoms and behaviors.
In some cases, ADHD boarding schools with intensive therapeutic approaches may be the answer to teach those struggling with ADHD to live healthy, independent lives. New Focus Academy can provide the help, support, and structure your New Hampshire teen with ADHD needs based on their individual strengths.

New Hampshire Teens Prepare for an Independent Life at ADHD Boarding Schools
If you have a child struggling with ADHD or other neurodevelopmental disorders, you know their day-to-day struggles as well as wonder about their future success. Some days, it just feels reassuring that your child goes to school on time, makes it through classes, and returns safely. Unfortunately, this is not enough for children challenged with ADHD to prepare for their futures. Their unique needs and strengths may not be addressed in a traditional classroom.
ADHD boarding schools recognize that a traditional classroom setting may not be enough for a struggling child to prepare for the future. New Focus Academy seeks to give each child a chance for independent living with their holistic residential program.
