When to Seek Help for ADHD?

Sometimes, the symptoms of ADHD can be hard to recognize and differentiate from typical behaviors of growing children. Also, on the other hand, some seemingly negative traits can often be traced as symptoms of ADHD. It can be confusing to sort through all of that information on your own, it's why it's important to seek professional advice, like with your child's pediatrician during checkups or if are noticing worrying signs in their emotional development or in school.

What Are the Symptoms of ADHD?

There are many possible signs of ADHD to examine but at the core, the hallmark symptoms are impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity. These can manifest as constant interrupting, outbursts, an inability to focus, and forgetfulness, among others. Not all of these always have to be present, as, for example, a child with ADHD could be very quiet and not prone to speaking out.

How Is ADHD Treated?

Treatment for ADHD takes a multifaceted approach, medication is certainly a part of it, but so are behavioral therapy and counseling. There is no cure for ADHD, instead, treatment focuses on managing the symptoms that can most negatively impact your child's ability to succeed.
