Written by Miracle on March 12, 2019
What is ADHD : Attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADHD) is the most common behavioral disorder of childhood, affecting 3 to 7 percent of school-age children. The three main ADHD symptoms in children include inattention, hyperactivity and a tendency to be impulsive. These traits can lead to difficulties in school, poor interactions with other children and adults, and low self-esteem. Associated disorders can include anxiety, depression, difficult behavior (oppositional defiant disorder), tics and learning disabilities. Does my child have ADHD? : Who should be evaluated for ADHD or related disorders? Children who exhibit any of the following behavioral characteristics: Academic difficulties Difficulties with attention span or excessive level of activity at home and in school Behavioral difficulties ADHD Evaluations : The first step for children seeking care and assistance through the center is a full evaluation by a physician – either a pediatric neurologist or psychiatrist specializing in ADHD. The physician will obtain a detailed medical history and perform a thorough physical and neurological examination. A consultation with a psychologist specializing in ADHD will usually be recommended. This may include an IQ test and evaluation for symptoms of ADHD and other conditions that can be associated or mistaken for ADHD. The need for additional testing, such as central auditory processing, will be assessed. Also, educational materials will be provided to the parents, and both parents and teachers will be asked to provide input by taking part in center questionnaires to help in completing the assessment. Once the evaluation is complete, the physician will meet with the family to discuss and explain results. Treatment options for ADHD: For children identified as having ADHD or associated disorders, the center offers ongoing management and support, including: Psychological intervention for therapy or behavior modification
