Children ADHD

Although children living with ADHD can be very successful in life, without proper treatment ADHD may have serious consequences, including school failure, depression, problems with relationships, substance abuse, and job failure.  It is  important to determine this early and get proper treatment.

ADHD is a common behavioral disorder in children.  Boys are almost three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with ADHD.  Kids with ADHD often act without thinking, are hyperactive, and have trouble focusing.  They may show one symptom or several.  They may understand what’s expected of them but have trouble following through because they can’t sit still, pay attention, or focus on details.  Patience is often needed during these tumultuous times to provide encouragement to children.

Of course, all kids (especially younger ones) act this way at times, particularly when they’re anxious or excited.  But the difference with ADHD is that symptoms are present over a longer period of time and occur in fairly different settings very frequently.  They impair a child’s ability to function socially, learn, and impact the family at home.

The good news is that with proper treatment, kids with ADHD can successfully resolve their symptoms. There are many adults who have been very successful in life after proper treatment.
