ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is one of the most common brain disorders among children, which can continue through adolescence and adulthood. ADHD is characterized by inattention and/or impulsivity (sometimes with hyperactivity), which significantly impacts many aspects of behavior and performance both at school and at home.
ADHD usually appears early in life (between ages 3-6). While many children can become distracted, act impulsively, struggle to concentrate and have high energy from time to time, those with ADHD are challenged daily to focus on everyday requests and routines.
Some examples of symptoms that are commonly noticed in children with ADHD include:
1. Conducting a detailed clinical interview with the patient. We may ask for prior medical records, academic records, and/or collateral interviews with other people in the patient’s life.
2. Administering symptom rating scales to the patient and, usually, at least one other person who knows the patient well (e.g. a parent, best friend, spouse, coworker).
3. Ruling out other possible explanations for the symptoms. This is why we ask about way more than just your attention problems during the evaluation.
We may conduct additional testing when we feel that it is clinically necessary. Additional testing is used to gather additional information or to rule out other potential causes of the symptoms.
