ADHD (Hyperactivity)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children and often persists into adulthood. It is characterized by symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, which can affect a child's academic, social, and emotional development.

ADHD is a complex disorder that is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. While the exact cause of ADHD is not yet fully understood, research has shown that certain genes may play a role in its development, as well as prenatal and early childhood exposures such as maternal smoking during pregnancy, premature birth, and low birth weight.

The symptoms of ADHD typically appear before the age of 12 and are typically categorized as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

  • Inattentive symptoms include

  • difficulty with focus and attention,

  • forgetfulness, and

  • difficulty with organization and planning.

  • Hyperactive symptoms include

  • excessive restlessness,

  • fidgeting, and

  • difficulty staying seated or quiet.

  • Impulsive symptoms include

  • acting without thinking,

  • interrupting others, and

  • difficulty waiting for one's turn.

At our hospital, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Our team of professionals includes licensed psychiatrists, psychologists, and other specialists who work together to provide comprehensive assessments and tailored treatment plans for children with ADHD.

Treatment for ADHD usually involves a combination of behavioral therapy and medication. Behavioral therapy helps children with ADHD to develop coping strategies and improve their executive functioning skills, such as organization and time management. Medication, such as stimulants and non-stimulants, can help improve attention, reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity, and improve overall functioning.

If you are concerned that your child may have ADHD, or if you are seeking treatment for an existing diagnosis, please do not hesitate to contact our hospital to schedule an evaluation. Our team is here to support you and your child throughout the diagnostic and treatment process, and to help them reach their full potential.
