Unraveling ADHD: A Multifaceted Challenge

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by a pattern of behavior and emotional dysregulation that can result in performance issues in social, educational, or work settings. Challenges such as time-blindness, impulsivity, and navigating an interest-based nervous system can derail the simplest tasks, turning them into daunting hurdles.

For those with ADHD, the world can often seem like a radio with all stations playing at once or like someone is constantly switching the station while you’re listening. The constant noise and disruption makes it difficult to focus on the task at hand, whether it’s completing a project at work, paying bills on time, or maintaining social relationships. Our occupational therapy services are designed to turn down the volume and give you control of the dial, allowing for clarity and productivity.

Our Approach to Occupational Therapy for ADHD

Occupational therapy at Affinity Wellness is not a one-size-fits-all solution. We believe in an individualized approach that helps you embrace your neurodiversity and learn to work with your unique brain. Our therapists are not just clinicians; they are advocates, educators, and partners in your journey to a more manageable life.

We begin with a comprehensive assessment to understand the specific ways in which ADHD affects you. From there, we develop a personalized intervention plan that may include environmental adaptation, skill development, exploring stress management for nervous system regulation, and strategies to improve executive functioning.

Our goal is to harness your strengths and empower you with the tools to live the life you want. This includes building on the foundations of brain health (sleep, nourishment, movement and connection), learning how to identify and regulate intense emotions or sensations, and developing skills to accomplish important tasks and prevent burnout. 

The Affinity Wellness Difference

At Affinity Wellness, we go beyond the conventional. Our occupational therapy services are rooted in respect, compassion, and a deep commitment to your success.

An Inclusive Space

We believe that creating an inclusive space is foundational to providing exceptional care. Our neurodiversity-affirming services encourage acceptance and embrace the traits that make you unique. We strive to provide a safe and inclusive space for our BIPOC, LGBTQ2SI+, and neurodiverse community members.

Evidence-Based Practices for Real-World Results

Since our interventions are provided by a registered health care provider, they are grounded in the latest research and evidence-based practices. We stay abreast of the newest developments in ADHD treatment to provide you with the most effective strategies for managing life challenges and improving function.
