What is ADHD?

When you have ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder), you demonstrate behaviors that seem beyond your control. ADHD usually begins in childhood but can persist into adulthood.

The neurodevelopmental disorder can make a child act in disruptive ways, so they’re often getting into trouble at school or with their caregivers. Adults with ADHD may struggle in relationships and have trouble in their careers.

What symptoms suggest ADHD?

ADHD causes many different behavioral symptoms. In children, you may find it difficult to distinguish between normal developmental behavior and ADHD. This is why you should always seek a professional diagnosis if you suspect your child has ADHD.

Symptoms that are considered primarily “inattentive” include:

  • Inability to focus
  • Trouble completing assignments
  • Being unresponsive
  • Making careless mistakes
  • Not following instructions
  • Losing things often
  • Lack of organizational skills
  • Forgetfulness
  • Being easily distracted

If you have primarily inattentive ADHD, you may seem to live in your own world and be oblivious at times to others.

Other symptoms of ADHD may show up as primarily hyperactive/impulsive. These symptoms include constant fidgeting, inappropriate vocal volume, and impatience. When children display these symptoms, they may be labeled as disruptive or difficult.

Many of the patients at E&B Behavioral and Medical Clinic LLC usually have a mixture of inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms.

What treatments do you offer for ADHD?

The team at E&B Behavioral and Medical Clinic LLC provides a two-fold treatment path for ADHD that includes medication and behavior therapy. Medication

Medication that includes stimulants works to boost an ADHD patient’s production of neurotransmitters in the brain. These chemicals help you manage behavior.

If you have depression and anxiety along with ADHD, antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications can also help ease symptoms.

Your provider does not rely on medication alone to treat ADHD. Behavioral therapy

The team at E&B Behavioral and Medical Clinic LLC helps you learn how to manage the unwanted behaviors that can make a living with ADHD such a challenge.

Behavioral therapy teaches patients how to divert the energy that leads to hyperactivity. The team gives you tools to improve your focus and resist impulsivity.
