Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a neurological based developmental disorder featuring inattention in individuals and having trouble focusing. The combination of short attention span and distractibility, allows a student to miss vital information in the classroom. Surrounding environmental noises and distraction from ones own thoughts takes away from the ability to retain knowledge. Symptoms such as “zoning out”, wandering attention, and what can be perceived as poor listening skills can have a direct effect on one’s success in the classroom as well as life outside of school.
CUSP Educational Services aids by helping the student figure out which learning style is best for them to overcome these difficulties. This style of coaching allows the student to take ownership of how they decide to manage their life. This “empower and modeling” approach has been successful with several CUSP students and has led to increased focus, communication, happiness and understanding of self.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed learning disorder within children. It is a neurological disorder closely associated with impulsivity, hyperactivity and difficulty paying attention. Symptoms involving these disorders range from mild to severe and are mainly dependent on the individual’s environment and neurological biology.
