Agapé, Helping Troubled Boys With Attention Deficit Disorder
We can help your son who suffers with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the inability to stay focused, with difficulty in controlling emotions and physical activity, when compared with the general population. This behavior can interfere with his ability to finish his work, and function successfully in society. If your boy is easily distracted, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one uncompleted task to another, he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Exact causes of ADD (also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show some links with genetics, diet and surrounding environment.
We Can Help Your Son With ADD
Attention Deficit Disorder is one of the most commonly diagnosed problems among boys today and so it is important to identify this Disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: anxiety, sleep or thyroid problems, depression, unexpected life changes) can closely imitate ADHD-like behaviors
Poor academic performance and low self-esteem often accompany ADD, and so a large percentage of boys with ADD will fail to finish high school. While he may not completely outgrow his symptoms, your son can certainly learn strategies for success.
You don’t want Attention Deficit Disorder to control his life!
What Makes Agape Boarding School the Right Place for Your Son with Attention Deficit Disorder?
An affordable, fully accredited, high quality Christian boarding school for teen boys who are struggling, Agape Boarding School specializes in working with rebellious, angry, know-it-all young men who are out of control. Has your son become lazy, with no accountability? Found the wrong crowd or been swayed into misbehavior drug or alcohol usage
Our sprawling campus with first-class sports facilities and hundreds of animals is designed specifically for adolescent boys 12-17 who are taking the wrong track in life; Agape works just with defiant and difficult boys, especially with those suffering with ADD so we know how to handle your son.
Our approach at Agape is loving, but disciplined, with 24/7 watchful care over your troubled boy. Agape, Greek for “God’s unconditional love” – is what we’ll show your boy as he struggles with behavior problems that are threatening his future. He’ll see God’s love daily, since spiritual growth leads to positive growth in every facet of life.
If you’ve tried short-term programs or hospital stays but to no lasting effect, and he refuses the idea of change, interventions away from home – such as a residential program like Agapé Boarding School — may be the answer for your boy.
If your son has been labeled a misfit or failure, we are here to offer a fresh start so that he may be productive in life, in whatever career path of his choosing, whether higher education, a trade or the military. Agape will give him the tools for a bright future, so he will be a productive member of society.
