The ADHD impact on families
ADD and ADHD impact families every day and they face challenges lots of other families don’t face. Challenges such as impulsive behavior, angry outbursts, frequent calls from teachers or school administrators, defiance and bad time management skills are a way of life.
This causes a life of stress, confrontation, and a lot of frustration for the children and their parents. The parents often end up spending thousands of dollars and countless hours bouncing between Doctors prescribing harmful medications or behavioral therapy programs, with mixed results at best.
When Behavioral Therapy Doesn't Work
Behavioral therapy seems to be the first line of defense but too many times they have little effect. When the bad behavior continues until the family can’t take it any longer, parents turn to medication.
These ADD/ADHD medications will often mask some symptoms and often come with devastating side effects including decreased appetite, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, weight loss, nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, vomiting, insomnia, and fatigue. Not to mention the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Categorizes ADHD drugs in the same category as highly addictive drugs like cocaine and morphine.

In a recent study, Dr. Karen Bonuk examined 11,000 children to determine the impact of sleep on development. Among her findings, Dr. Bonuk identified a connection between interrupted sleep due to snoring, mouth breathing, or other physiological factors and ADHD-like symptoms in children. Specifically, the children with interrupted sleep were found to be more likely than others to show ADHD-like symptoms.
When children have poor-quality sleep, they live poor-quality days. And this goes on for years. These children have trouble fitting in at school. They have trouble learning. They have trouble concentrating and they’re disruptive.
When children demonstrate these symptoms, parents and educators end up evaluating—and diagnosing—the child with ADD or ADHD. The diagnosis then causes families to go through the same traditional treatments, even though children who are sleep-deprived produce the exact same symptoms as children with ADHD.
This discovery led to a significant breakthrough in the treatment of ADD and ADHD or even bed wetting symptoms—using a combination of technologies to determine whether a child’s symptoms are truly ADD or ADHD or the result of poor sleep. Many times, the issue is sleep. The child does not actually have ADD or ADHD, though they may have the same symptoms. But the cause of the symptoms is different. That’s important because the treatment is different. And permanent. And not medicinal.
