Maybe your child/teen gets emotional at simple things and seems to overreact. Are you tired from trying different options to control yourself or your child/teen? We are here to help by providing ADHD treatment, ADHD testing, and ADHD counseling!

Many People Have Different Types of ADHD

There are different types of ADHD and brain scans have shown that different types are because different parts of the brain are affected. The main symptoms are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The symptoms you or your child/teen have may be different than others who have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). You may also see it referred to as ADD (attention deficit disorder). This is because there are three main types according to the DSM - inattention, hyperactive, or both combined. Even with these three main types of your experience may be different from others. For kids, most will not diagnosis this before the age of 6 due to developmental and social changes that happen in the early years. ADHD assessment can help know if it is the right diagnosis and ADHD treatment can help.

Sometimes Family and Friends May Not Understand

Has someone told you your just don't listen? Maybe they think you just do not want to do what was asked. Or maybe you have heard (or said to your child/teen), "How did you not see it? You walked right past it!" It is hard for others to understand or know how your brain works and operates differently than theirs.

You may have tried to just focus harder or pay more attention or be more motivated, but these efforts feel short. Maybe you get tired and it seems like a constant battle. This can add to the frustration for yourself and others do not understand the mental effort you have put in. Maybe your child has come home from school and just seems to be out-of-control. They have spent their day at school trying to mentally control themselves and are now too tired to keep up the battle. Maybe you feel this way after work.

We can help by providing ADHD treatment, ADHD testing, and ADHD counseling.

Many People Struggle With Some Form of ADHD

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, as many as 11% of kids between ages 4-17, 8.7% of teens 13-18, and 8.1% of adults have been diagnosed with ADHD. Everyone has many roles and responsibilities to juggle through the day and ADHD can make these more difficult to accomplish. It can also cause frustrations in relationships with family and friends.

It is possible to get help and for symptoms and for relationships to improve!! It is also interesting to note that although it is referred to as an "attention deficit" this may not be an accurate representation. Most people can take all of the stimulus around them and weed out what is important and what does not truly matter. For most with ADHD this is much more difficult. All the stimuli seem important and so they are overloaded with the information and possible options. Decisions can be more difficult to make and it is easier to get distracted when the slight noise behind you or your child/teen seem equally as important as the person talking to you.
