ADHD & Sensory Processing Disorder
Please note that Dr. Debby Hamilton has closed her practice.
ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is increasingly common in our country. Standard medical treatment usually consists of prescription medications that carry the risk of many side effects and are not always effective. Luckily many biomedical treatments are available that can help. These treatments are safe, reduce the ADHD symptoms and improve the general health of the child.
Sensory processing disorder is when a child interprets sensory information from the environment differently which leads to problems with taste, touch, sound, vision, and movement. These sensory issues can cause havoc in everyday life and are common in children with ADHD and autism. The biomedical approach helps reduce sensory issues.
|The modern practice of medicine can easily become impersonal. We have all experienced the doctor appointment that started with waiting 45-minutes only to spend 7-minutes with the doctor. Dr. Debby, as she prefers to be addressed, is an exception to this experience. Although a Board Certified Pediatrician, Dr. Debby has pursued additional knowledge about nutrition, holistic alternatives and preventive medicine in overseeing the health of your children. When you are waiting for follow-up information, Dr. Debby is the person that calls you at home -- imagine that!|
