Chicago, Illinois – 25th April, 2016 – With more than 2 million children suffering from attention disorders, ADD/ADHD is an alarming problem facing our society. What’s more alarming is the fact that children are increasingly put on prescription medication, as this has been the most widely accepted and implemented treatment mode to date. But a cutting edge Chicago facility Cognitive Solutions Learning Center has redefined the conventional approach with its revolutionary ADD/ADHD treatment that helps develop focus and regulation without medication.
In addition to disorders of attention (ADD/ADHD), Cognitive Solutions’ non-medicinal approach has also seen high success rates in treating symptoms of depression and anxiety.
“Mental Health data shows that more than 10 percent of school-aged children suffer from Attention Deficit Disorders and what scared me the most is that medications have been the only solution available for these children. Thus, I took to extensive research to find a successful non-medicinal solution for disorders of attention and emotional regulation. My research has helped to develop a noninvasive multifaceted treatment approach for ADD/ADHD for both children and adults – that can actually treat the ADHD issue in them without being dependent on excessive medication,” stated Dr. Ari Goldstein, founder, Cognitive Solutions.
With a Master’s degree in Learning disabilities and a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, Dr. Goldstein has been assessing and teaching both children and adults with special needs for the last two decades in both the public and private sectors. According to this leading educational psychologist, Attention Deficit Disorder is a disability of regulation, where the individual finds it difficult to regulate and control his/her actions, behaviors, and thoughts, as well as problem solving capacity. The basis of Dr. Goldstein’s ADD/ADHD treatment approach lies in identifying how the regulation problems are manifesting, thereby allowing for a customized treatment plan to be devised to address those deficits.
Speaking on his revolutionary non-medicinal treatment for ADHD, Dr. Goldstein stressed his 4 prong approach.
The 1st prong is based on treating inattention and social emotional difficulties through adequate nutrition & supplementation, as the food consumed by the body highly impacts brain functionality. Sugar worsens ADHD/ADD issues and a stable sugar level helps to lessen anxiety and better regulate attention. He also emphasized the elimination of processed foods and checking for food allergies, as well as supplementing with EPA and DHA (Omega-3 fatty acids) to improve brain function.
Dr. Goldstein’s 2nd prong relates to exercise & sensory input, as workouts help to better balance chemicals in the brain. It’s especially crucial if an individual spends too much of time in front of screens as these devices can worsen attention span.
The 3rd prong is focused on training of executive functions – a set of cognitive skills that help the brain manage itself. This brain “maestro” impacts functions ranging from organization and planning to working memory and emotional control.
The 4th& leading prong is based on neuro feedback or EEG therapy which trains the individual to recognize the state of brain wave activity so that it can be shifted more easily. “It teaches kids with ADHD to shift the brain from a lethargic relaxed state to a state of energy & attention.”
