Attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood-onset psychiatric disorders. It is distinguished by symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD may be accompanied by learning disabilities, depression, anxiety, conduct disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. The disorder can also be present without the hyperactivity piece (ADD). The disorder may have several different causes.

Symptoms of ADD:

  • Difficulty sustaining attention
  • Appears to not listen
  • Trouble following through with directions
  • Loses things frequently
  • Easily distracted
  • Impulse control issues

Symptoms of Hyperactivity (ADHD):

  • Interrupts
  • Difficulty waiting
  • Can't sit still
ADD/ADHD is not just a childhood issue. For many, it goes undiagnosed and causes problems later in life. The counselors and psychologist at PRO Medical can assess for ADD and ADHD. They work with behavioral interventions to help with symptoms and the psychiatrist can also prescribe medication to reduce symptoms of ADD/ADHD.
