Yet AD(H)D has many positive features too. People with AD(H)D are often naturally inquisitive, good multi-taskers, can be quick-witted, visionary, good lateral thinkers and/or courageous when it comes to taking risks. These characteristics can be powerful assets in many walks of life.
In order to fully understand AD(H)D, it is necessary to understand the very particular way that a person with AD(H)D will perceive the real world through the "filter" of the AD(H)D thinking style. As a result, people with AD(H)D will often have incomplete mastery of important life concepts such as consequence, time, sequence and order. Many of the behavioural issues that some people with AD(H)D display can be traced back to the effect of the "AD(H)D filter".
Offering a drug-free approach, the Davis® Attention Mastery Programme is an individual, intensive empowerment programs for children and adults which which honors the AD(H)D thinking style, working with it to enable a person to master areas of their lives that have hitherto caused them confusion.
It enables people with AD(H)D to master fully the concepts needed for successful interaction with other people, the physical universe, and the process of learning.
It is common for AD(H)D to be accompanied by other issues such as dyslexia, poor coordination or difficulties with maths. When this is the case, the versatility of the Davis methods means that any of these can be worked on together as a range, rather than each requiring separate approaches.
