Difficulty with Focus
Children with ADHD often have a hard time regulating their emotions and behavior. Common symptoms include challenges with organization, impulsivity, and lack of follow through on activities. Your child may fidget constantly and need to move around all the time, even when they’re expected to stay still. Self-control is a challenge, and your child may talk excessively, interrupting conversation and being constantly ‘on the go’.
There are Multiple Types of ADHD
A child with ADHD does not always act the same way. Some children are primarily inattentive, but able to sit still, which can often delay diagnosis. Others will be primarily of the hyperactive-impulsive variety, which brings them to clinical attention earlier because of disruption in the classroom or at home. Some children present with both types of symptoms. Although treatment is similar with each type of ADHD, we’ll work with your child to identify the optimal treatment plan for long-term success.
