Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and control impulsive behaviors. One may also be restless and almost constantly active.
ADHD can be caused due to genetic, non-genetic or environmental factors. Some of which are, use of alcohol, drugs or smoking during pregnancy, brain injuries, low birth weight, exposed to dangerous toxins at a young age, etc.
Although the symptoms of ADHD begin in childhood, they can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Even though hyperactivity tends to reduce as a child becomes a teen, problems with inattention, disorganization, and poor impulse control often continue through the teen years and into adulthood.
The three key warning signs of ADHD are:
- Short attention span or difficulty paying attention (inattention)
- Having difficulty sitting still or being overactive (hyperactivity)
- Acting without thinking (Impulsivity)
The management plan for ADHD will include Neurofeedback, Play Therapy, Brain gymming, and counseling.
