ADHD

 

All children have difficulty sitting still, paying attention, or controlling their impulses from time to time.  However, when these behaviors are pervasive, last for a long period of time, and interfere with a child’s ability to accomplish everyday tasks, he or she may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  ADHD is a biological brain disorder that is estimated to affect as many as 1 in 10 children in the United States.

Without proper treatment, children and adolescents with ADHD often develop other social, emotional, and behavioral problems.  Early identification, comprehensive assessment, and integrated treatment of children and adolescents with ADHD are extremely important and can significantly impact lifelong well-being and success.
