Helping Boys with Attention Deficit Disorder
We can assist your teen who struggles with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern distinguished as his lack of ability to stay on task, with difficulty controlling his emotions and staying still. This behavior can easily hinder your child’s capacity to finish his work, and function successfully in society.
If your son has poor organizational skills and is easily sidetracked, or jumps from one incomplete assignment to another, he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Exact causes of ADD (also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are not known but studies show some links between environment, nutrition and genetics.
We’re Here to Help Your Son Who Has Attention Deficit Disorder
Attention Deficit Disorder is one of the most frequently diagnosed problems among adolescents today and it is imperative to identify this Disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: depression, anxiety, sleep or thyroid problems, major life change) can closely imitate ADHD-like behaviors
Because the great level of distraction with ADD often leads to poor academic performance and low self-esteem, a large percentage of boys with it will fail to finish high school. While he may not completely outgrow his symptoms, your boy can certainly learn strategies for success. You don’t want ADHD to control his life!
Pine Mountain Academy – Offering a Second Chance at a New Life
Our 15-month, bible-based, therapeutic curriculum is designed in such a way as to emphasize introspective thinking along with our Christian counseling. Tailored for the individual student, the work requires our students to scrutinize areas of their lives in need of change,
Boys come to us in various states of meaninglessness, having developed dysfunctional behaviors and attitudes to satisfy their need for security and significance. As loving parents, you have explored every option as you’ve tried to help your son who has been compromised as a result of his destructive choices. Once having looked to you for direction and approval, he is now following a negative peer group down the wrong path.
Guided by the pastoral counselors on our staff, Group Counseling (in addition to Individual Counseling) occurs on a regular basis at Pine Mountain Boys Academy. This time is an opportunity to let students come to grips with commonly faced problems.
The Teen Challenge program provides a safe haven for adolescents who have filled the emptiness in their hearts with devastating consequences in its place; our residential school provides an opportunity for each student to refocus and evaluate his life decisions. We narrow distractions to provide an environment favorable to learning at Pine Mountain Boys Academy. Students won’t have access to email or social networking sites, instead focusing on their secondary education within our rigorous, interactive, self-paced curriculum. Alpha Omega Academy is a fully accredited, high quality program, created exclusively for Christian schools.
Our Aftercare program will re-establish your son’s trust, along with conflict resolution, specific responsibilities and educational goals for his return to your home.
Our environment balances discipline with personal responsibility to create a positive peer element, nurturing students who’ll receive Pine Mountain Academy’s crucial lessons of patience, diligence, teamwork, work ethics and motivation. Your son will be able to make healthy choices, transformed into the confident, unique young man he is, with a positive vision for his life ahead.
