Wolf Creek Academy understands you want to find help for your teen who struggles with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). If your child is easily sidetracked, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one unfinished task to another, s/he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder. We can help your child who is struggling with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay focused, with trouble in controlling emotions and staying still, when compared with the general population. This behavior can certainly hinder your teen’s ability to finish projects, and function successfully in society. Exact causes of ADD (also known by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show some genetic, nutritional and environmental links.
Wolf Creek Academy – Here to Help your Teen with ADD
As one of the most commonly diagnosed problems among adolescents today, it is imperative to identify Attention Deficit Disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: anxiety, sleep or thyroid problems, depression) can closely imitate ADHD-like behaviors. Because of the great level of distraction with ADD (which often leads to poor academic performance and low self-esteem), a large percentage of kids with it will fail to finish high school. While maybe not completely outgrow their symptoms, your child can certainly learn strategies for success. You don’t want ADHD to control your teen’s life!
A Hope and a Future for Every Child
Wolf Creek Academy is faith-based; a professionally team staffed residential boarding school, here to help your struggling or rebellious teen. Our program instills integrity, accountability, responsibility and character while providing your child behavioral counseling and a quality education. Our family-model lifestyle offers a safe, nurturing atmosphere that encourages developing skills, particularly in building positive relationships with authority figures as well as their peers. The staff works with our boys and girls to teach them independent skills and valuable life lessons that will prove indispensible for building their future. Counseling is provided for teens who struggle with behavioral and emotional problems, and they meet with a licensed certified counselor once weekly at a minimum. Daily group sessions are used to address issues of anger management and respect of authority, self-respect, or other relevant issues. The non-threatening atmosphere of this small group session allows them to learn from one another, and they can realize there are appropriate ways of managing their respective behavioral difficulties. Regular psychiatric monitoring is available for students who require medication.
The accredited Lighthouse Christian Academy supports the mission of Wolf Creek Academy, to help students master curriculum knowledge with the Accelerated Christian Education system. Whether moderately paced learner or high achiever, all children are enabled to work at their own ability and appropriate level in our classroom settings, and our therapeutic and nurturing environment is a safeguard for success. Designed to meet the learning needs of the individual child, students advance at their own pace; most often an accelerated pace which boosts self-respect, repairs self-confidence and promotes security for a successful future. They are recognized and rewarded for value, effort and significance in learning.
