Our Special thanks to Dr. Robert F. Reynolds for his appearance on Robyn's Nest, the television show, in a two part series on attentive and behavioral disorders in children. Dr. Reynolds and his team at Connecticut Educational Services are using state of the art techniques such as neurofeedback to possibly eliminate the need for medication and with unbelievable results!

Identifying Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADD/ADHD) - Is your child having difficulty concentrating? Getting in trouble in school? Doesn't seem to listen? Can't seem to sit still and focus in situations that require his attention? If so, your child may have one of three types of ADHD. We've provided this self-assessment chart to help you determine just that. http://www.robynsnest.com/adhd.htm
Identifying Behavioral Disorders (ODD, CD and Bullying) - Does your child often lose his temper? Argue with you? Refuse to follow your rules? Blame others for her behavior? A regular pattern of these types of behaviors may indicate a disorder on the rise today, Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Here we present questions to ask yourself to help you identify these conditions and promote early assessment by a licensed professional. http://www.robynsnest.com/behavdisor.htm
