Psychotherapy for ADHD and Learning Disabilities
Psychotherapy for ADHD and learning disabilities also known as talk therapy is a way to use psychological methods to improve an individual’s well-being and mental health. It is an integral part of managing learning disabilities, co-morbidities like ADHD and other difficulties associated with them like anxiety, panic attacks, fear of school, extreme defiance or shyness, violent behaviour, or other behavioural issues.
Psychotherapy for ADHD aims to enable your child to understand their feelings, thoughts, behaviour and what makes them feel positive or anxious. Psychotherapy can equip them to respond positively to challenging situations in a more adaptive way.
Psychotherapy has many different approaches and styles; the two most used psychotherapy approaches for children with learning disabilities and ADHD are Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and Social skills therapy (SST).
