Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Is it hard for your child to sit still? Does your child act without thinking first? Does your child start but not finish things? If so, your child may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Nearly everyone shows some of these behaviors at times, but ADHD lasts more than 6 months and causes problems in school, at home and in social situations.
After a comprehensive assessment, individualized treatment plans are designed in collaboration with the parents. Treatment often focuses on achieving the behavior change necessary for academic, emotional and social development.
