Our treatment program at Plexus

At Plexus, we follow the school of thought that behaviors can be instilled and reinforced through repetition and exposure – be it positive or negative. Occupational therapy is a mainstay of ADHD and that’s why we leverage it as a tool to identify and correct maladaptive behaviors through consistent and repeated action-based practice.

Our customized treatment plans include close monitoring, follow-ups, and making changes, if needed, along the way.
Many times the overlying behavioral problems and inattention are due to underlying sensory processing and sensory modulation issues. We at Plexus, address these underlying reasons through a combination of therapies and scientific evidence-based practices.
