Welcome to Aggieland ADHD



The Aggieland ADHD Center has been established to aid patients who have had problems with ADHD.  The Center’s goals are to help evaluate, diagnose, as well as treat patients of all ages.  With the emphasis on strategies to adapt to the world when dealing with ADHD, Aggieland ADHD has been concentrating on improving a person’s ability to meet the demands of today’s life.

 

Dr. Michael F. Ruggiero, Center Director, brings years of practical experience and academic expertise to our Center.  Dr. Ruggiero served as Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine. He has been Director of Medical Education for the Texas A&M Physicians Family Medicine Residency.   He has studied, written and spoken extensively on the subject of ADHD.

 

The Center has been established with a goal of furthering research and development of Adaptive Education techniques, aiding persons with ADHD in navigating their way through an education system that is geared more toward neurotypical individuals.  Problems with learning often are the reasons most people suspect that they may be dealing with ADHD.  We work in conjunction with ADHD coaches, as well as local schools and health providers.  We try to provide a comprehensive Center that can help in every aspect of life for the individual with ADHD.  

 

Aggieland ADHD Center works with students at the local high schools and Universities.  We help with accommodations in school and train individuals how to work through difficulties at home, work and especially in their educational experience.    

 

About ADHD

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is just one of a group of pervasive, debilitating disorders affecting about 30 million Americans and up to 10 percent of the world's population. Heightened awareness of the condition has led to earlier recognition and diagnoses, but many adults with ADHD go undiagnosed and untreated.

 

The People at The Aggieland ADHD Center understand the difficulties people with ADHD face navigating the fast paced world of college life. They are an approachable, accessible area of expertise.
