    Treatment for ADHD can often be connected to children and adolescents school work, Children and adolescents often enjoy the good ole “back pack dump” because it allows for the psychologist and the client to identify what’s not working with their already established organization system and define a new system that works for them. Collaboration with the client’s is key.
