Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):
Children with ADHD

Some things may be normal among kids, such as lack of attention, being forgetful or getting fidgety and hyperactive, these can also be the presenting symptoms of ADHD. This may lead to challenges for the child at home and school affecting the child learning ability and get along with other kids.

To cope with the issue of having ADHD in a child, parents must first get to know how to distinguish the symptoms of ADHD. Symptoms of ADHD usually emerge before the child reaches seven years old. Sometimes, these signs may appear similar to normal kids’ behaviour. As parents, observing the behaviour your child shows at different situations is vital in addressing what bothers them and telling if it is ADHD or not.

Seeing a number of signs and symptoms across all situations when you’re at home, school or at play may suggest that you should start taking a closer look with your child.

There are three types of ADHD according to the presentation of its symptoms. ADHD Children may be:

  • Inattentive, yet not hyperactive or impulsive
  • Impulsive and hyperactive, but attentive
  • Combined type: Inattentive, impulsive, and hyperactive (the most common form of ADHD)

Student Assessments

We normally ask if it is possible for you to get some collateral history, preferably from someone who has known you since childhood. This helps the doctor to get a better objective understanding of how your ADHD symptoms may have affected you throughout your life.

Diagnosis

The sooner you get diagnosed and start on a treatment plan for Adult ADHD the better it will be in terms of making positive life changes. However, it is important to remember that is never too late to get help for Adult ADHD. We have had many clients come to The ADHD Centre in their retirement seeking help and have worked successfully with them to help them get on top of their symptoms so that they are leading a fuller and richer life.

SynopsisADHD HistoryAfter The Diagnosis

Psychology and Psychiatry

Studies show that adults with ADHD have an increased risk of also suffering from other psychological problems: particularly depression, anxiety and substance abuse. This is often because their ADHD went undiagnosed and untreated in childhood and they may be using substances to self-medicate.
