Helping challenged children (ADD & ADHD)

Category: Education
The SmartCoach program is a comprehensive program to help children with ADD, ADHD or bahavioral challenges learn to excel as who they are. We will give these exceptional children exercises and lessons to help them modify their behavior and bring out the positive attributes also displayed in ADD/ADHD individuals, such as, compassion, creativity, oringinality, energy, wit and drive. We will help foster the left/right brain neuronal connection and brain stimulation and oxygenation through selective martial arts and fitness movements. Medication alone is not the answer to help these children. Please visit or call 410-312-5500. Refer to Michael J. Garant, Ph.D when you call.
