Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that begins in childhood but can persist through adulthood. Around 10% of American children have ADHD, mostly in boys, though research shows that this discrepancy is likely due to different ADHD presentations and cultural expectations in boys and girls. For a diagnosis, symptoms must present prior to age 12.

The symptoms of ADHD can be separated into two categories: inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity.

Symptoms of inattention include:

  • making careless mistakes / inattention to detail
  • trouble holding attention on tasks or activities
  • does not seem to listen when spoken to
  • does not follow through on instructions / fails to complete schoolwork or chores
  • trouble organizing tasks
  • avoids or dislikes tasks that require sustained mental effort, such as schoolwork
  • loses things necessary for activities
  • easily distracted, forgetful

Symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity include:

  • fidgety, squirms in seat
  • leaves seat in situations where being seated is expected
  • runs around or climbs in inappropriate situations
  • unable to play or take part in leisure activities quietly
  • talks excessively
  • blurts out answers before a question is completed
  • has trouble waiting their turn
  • interrupts or intrudes on others

In girls, ADHD can present slightly differently, so in addition to the above symptoms, watch out for:

  • being withdrawn
  • low self-esteem
  • tendency to “daydream”
  • verbal aggression

If you recognize any of these symptoms in your child, it is important to reach out and make a treatment plan. There are some ADHD tests that can help, but we highly recommend seeing a mental healthcare provider for a diagnosis. There are multiple ADHD treatment options shown to be successful for patients.

We can also employ CBS cognitive testing to monitor and measure your attentiveness and analyze said data to closely measure and observe your progress throughout treatment.

If you believe you or your child may have ADHD, contact us today for cognitive testing and help forming a treatment plan!
