Attention Deficit Disorder in Teenage Girls
At Wings of Faith, we can help your daughter with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the inability to focus on task, being easily distracted, difficulty in controlling emotions and physical activity (staying still), when compared with the general population. This behavior interferes with a girl’s ability to complete work, and function successfully in society.
The exact cause of Attention Deficit Disorder (also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/ADHD) is unknown but studies show certain links with genetics, diet and environment. It is important to identify this Disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: sleep or thyroid problems, anxiety, depression, unexpected life change) can mimic ADHD-like behaviors. Attention Deficit Disorder is one of the most commonly diagnosed problems among young people today.
Wings of Faith Academy is uniquely equipped to help struggling teen girls who are at risk because of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Treatment for ADD and ADHD can be effective with a combination of medication, diet and behavioral therapy. Our structured environment and counseling will help your daughter get the help she needs in coping with her Attention Deficit Disorder. We will help her discover and face her particular issues and learn how to make positive changes in her life. We understand how incredibly difficult it is when you are looking for help with an out-of-control or rebellious teen.
Finding the right boarding school will undoubtedly be one of the hardest – yet most important – decisions you will ever make. There is hope for your daughter, and our safe environment with compassionate care and staff supervision can be the first solid step in finding a way out of the control that Attention Deficit Disorder seems to hold over her.
A Balanced Life
Our priority is to help your daughter with her Attention Deficit Disorder. And, because almost half the girls who have ADD/ADHD fail to finish high school, we offer a fully accredited high school diploma program. We think it is very important for her life to be well balanced and so we provide many activities, such as horseback riding, volleyball, swimming, caring for farm animals, wilderness outings, uplifting movies and more. Your daughter will learn to sing in our choir and to speak publicly. Our school offers a well-balanced therapeutic program designed to help her get back on track spiritually, behaviorally and academically.
Why Wings of Faith Academy for Girls?
Typical boarding schools tend to expel misbehaving girls but at Wings of Faith, we welcome them and work with them to change their behaviors. Wings of Faith is an affordable conservative Christian boarding school, designed for pre-teen and teenage girls who are struggling with bad behavior. The Academy provides behavioral correction with an emphasis on Christian values, set in a comfortable residential ranch setting. Our methods have been turning teen girls around for over 20 years.
