At the Dunbar ADHD Program our primary goal is to offer a one-stop center to address ADHD issues relating to the home, the school and within the child.   We will provide to parents and children practical and effective recommendations that will be family friendly and useful at school.   Information will be collected from the parents, the child (where appropriate), the school and other professionals within the community.   This will allow us to provide both the most appropriate treatment and the educational steps necessary for the child’s success.
