We have not addressed this topic for a bit. AD/HD is well known to adults…or is it? Every year we learn more and more about this malady. Our overall understanding of AD/HD has evolved over the years. Dr. Steven Sussman, a noted child psychologist in the New York/New Jersey area, has seen a great deal of the evolution of modern treatment.

For example, over time we have learned that attention deficit disorder may be caused by -

1. A decreased level of activity in certain parts of the brain.

2. It just may “run in the family”.

3. In some cases, it can be brought on by a head injury.

4. In rare cases it can be exacerbated by toxins in the environment.

Above all else, Dr. Steven Sussman is dedicated to staying atop of all of the latest treatment developments. AD/HD will continue to frustrate parents in the NYC area. If you have a child whom you think may be afflicted by attention deficit disorder, please give Dr. Steven Sussman a call at (908) 217-8106. What a career he continues to have! See it at

Don't Throw in the Towel.

Have you ever been at wit’s end. I mean to the point of throwing up your hands and saying “I just can’t do this!” Raising a human being to adulthood is not putting together a bicycle. It is one of your sacred trusts. You brought ‘em in, now you make it work. New York/New Jersey child psychologist Dr. Steven Sussman would like to help you.

Why should you allow a 3rd party to help you raise your kid(s)? Well, do you take your child to the doctor when they are physically ill? You send them to school (we presume) to let teachers “work their magic”. Why wouldn’t you look at youth psychology and all that it entails to do the same thing?

If you need convincing, we invite you to take a good, long look at That is the website that Dr. Steven Sussman uses to show you his background and methods. Do you still need a little nudge? How about giving Dr. Steve a call at his Mountainside, NJ office at (908) 217-8106? I’ll bet he’ll have you laughing within 5 minutes. Come on, call him!

Proud to be a Melting Pot.

There is no place in America that is more of a “melting pot” than New York City and the surrounding area. I, for one, celebrate that fact especially at holiday time! How do we recognize the many faiths and beliefs that come together to form our NYC family this time of year?

Here are some ideas -

1.  Learn more about each holiday…even if it is just a little bit.

2.  Promote religious variance in your office with different decorations.

3.  Rebrand your Christmas party to a Holiday party.

From Mountainside, New Jersey, I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season and a beautiful 2023. My name is Doctor Steven Sussman, a noted child psychologist in the New York/New Jersey area. Here is something we can ALL celebrate. Out 2022 holiday edition of Post-Covid! Enjoy, love Dr. Steve.
