Evaluation and Treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

A type of neurobehavioral developmental disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects about 3 to 5 percent of children and adults. Persons with ADD or ADHD may seem signs of impulsive or hyperactive, or they may exhibit signs of distractibility and have poor concentration.

Other more subtle symptoms for children often include forgetting information previously learned, under-performing in school, acting out frustrations through behavioral problems, forgetting to write down or turn in assignments, and not responding to traditional rewards or consequences.

An accurate evaluation for a child that may have ADHD involves assessing the child to rule out other factors or disorders which sometimes cause similar symptoms.
