ADD and ADHD Symptoms and Treatment

concept in clay: order: things in their proper places, proper positions and proper conditions

Behind ADD and ADHD is a perceptual talent

Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without hyperactivity) has as its basis the same perceptual talent as dyslexia. See More Information, Page 2

Confusion about the real world

However in this case, the cause of the disorientation is not a reaction to words and letters, but to confusion in the person's environment. When these distortions happen as an automatic and compulsive response to such confusion, a learning disability is born.

Treatment

Seeing things accurately

The Davis programme shows the ADHD person how he or she can consciously control these disorientations.

The first stage is for them to become aware of what is happening. Then, having learnt how to switch off the disorientations, they can do this at will. They will then have an accurate view of their environment.

For example, they can hear accurately what other people are saying and are able to sit still and listen. Because of this, they can perhaps join in more comfortably with others in a group.

Getting rid of the confusion

Once again, this is good but not enough. The underlying causes of the disorientations must be addressed, and for this we work with clay.
