ADHD Tip - Be Sure To Avoid The Doctor Who Has Seen It All When It Comes To Your Child & ADHD

While most medical and mental health professionals set out with the best interest of their patients in mind, above all else, they are in fact only human.

In my years of working in various treatment centers, mental health clinics, and other facilities, I have come across several types of professionals. One of these types should be avoided at all cost.

While you might not always be able to tell who they are right away, you might eventually start picking up signs that something is wrong.

Warning Signs Include:

  • "I've seen it all. "
  • "There's nothing I can't help you with. "
  • "They don't believe a thing you say. "
  • "They have an answer for everything. "
  • "They are not listening to you. "
  • "They make a decision about you or your child before asking questions. "
  • While it is not easy to judge who someone is based on these criteria alone, they are a few of the signs to watch out for when trying to avoid someone who “has seen it all. "

    A professional who has “seen it all" or seems to have you, your child, or your individual situation all figured out within the first few meetings is not someone with your best interests in mind.

    Avoid the professional is burnt out!

    When it comes to ADHD, this is particularly relevant and important for your success. This attitude of having seen it all comes with:

  • Arrogance
  • Attitude
  • Ignorance
  • Selfishness
  • While I am generalizing here, I want you to be aware of the individual who thinks he or she has all the answers.

    Regardless of the similarities in symptoms and presentation, each individual is different. Each child's presentation with ADHD is impacted by different situational factors (i. e. , school, life, friends, dreams, goals) that make their case unique.

    As a parent, you deserve someone who is going to treat you, your child, and your situation with the utmost respect and integrity. You deserve a professional who will take your case and treat it as something entirely new and unique so that you will get the best treatment advice possible.

    I don't want you to be scared. This individual is rare in the field, but they exist, and it is important to not fall into their arrogance or belief that your situation is just like everyone else's, particularly in the case of someone struggling with symptoms of ADHD.

    And now I would like to invite you to download an almost 60-minute audio interview available at http://www.adhdsuccessaudio.com where one successful professional reveals his personal struggle and success managing his symptoms of ADHD over the last 15 years.
