Most homes, especially those with multiple children, can be very inconsistent and ever-changing. As things come up (softball practice, unexpected teacher conference, work trip, etc.) family schedules change and often vary from day to day.
The right environment to support a hyperactive child
With an unknown schedule, hyperactivity in children can worsen and create behavior problems preventing the child from being productive. Residential treatment centers help children suffering from hyperactivity to increase productivity, grow their social skills, and excel in school.
Structure and therapeutic support help hyperactivity in children
RTCs offer a structured, consistent environment with clear expectations and individual attention. These attributes greatly benefit children whose hyperactivity prevents them from succeeding in most home and school environments.
Helping the child overcome hyperactivity
Though temporarily beneficial, there is little evidence that medication can have a long-lasting, affirmative effect on hyperactive children. Where as mindfulness, psychotherapy, and structured environment do have significant, positive results that bring comprehensive, deep rooted change.
Asheville Academy for Girls can help
At Asheville Academy for Girls, your daughter will be able to focus on her development through a structured day mixed with activities, therapy, and education, all with support from our therapeutic staff. We also implement a level system designed to offer incentives and rewards for meeting day-to-day challenges. As your daughter overcomes daily challenges, she will become more productive in all aspects of her life.
Academic success is possible!
Most children who suffer from the effects of hyperactivity struggle academically. They are unable to pay attention for long periods of time and get characterized as classroom disturbances. In most schools, there is not enough time and too many students to properly assist hyperactive children.
Girls with hyperactivity often do not possess the patience and perseverance to stick to academics or extracurricular activities.
“Not only do they fall behind academically, but they also come to think of themselves as “quitters” with few talents.”
The small class size and individualized plans available at AAG will help your daughter’s ability to focus and work at her own pace. She will also have many opportunities to participate in a variety of activities after school and on weekends.
