ADHD If your child has behavioral problems at school or when socializing with other children, it could be related to ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). To get an official diagnosis of this disorder, you must see a doctor and therapists who can examine and talk to your child. A pediatrician at ESD Pediatric Group in Milford and Hyde Park can guide you in the right direction after a diagnosis of ADHD.

Understanding ADHD

It is normal for young kids to be a little rambunctious and full of energy but at appropriate times. When a child's level of activity or lack of focus affects their school work and becomes a strain on social and family relationships it could be a behavioral condition called ADHD. ADHD is a mental disorder that is most common in children but can also be diagnosed in adults which makes it difficult to focus, think, concentrate, or relax. It can cause children to have problems in school, which is why it is an urgent matter that you and your pediatrician should address as early as possible.

How Do You Know Your Child Has ADHD?

If you have noticed concerning behaviors in your child, it’s best to follow your intuition and schedule a checkup with your Milford and Hyde Park pediatrician. The most common signs of ADHD include:

  • Problems paying attention in class.
  • Inability to sit still or complete a task.
  • Low attention span.
  • Memory issues.
  • Mood swings.
  • Impulsive behavior (acting without thinking).
  • Repeating phrases and thoughts.

ADHD Therapies

The best results are possible when attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is diagnosed and treated early in childhood. ADHD is commonly managed in two ways:

  • Behavioral therapy includes regular appointments with a qualified therapist to teach the child to make better choices and to reduce problem behaviors. This also includes parental training and support.
  • Medications, which help the child focus (stimulants) or calm the child down to help improve their attention span (non-stimulants).
