Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)​

As children grow and progress in their mental development, they may experience some difficulty focusing or exhibit behavioral problems. While at times disruptive, these behaviors are part of our social and mental development. However, for children with ADHD, these issues do not change or improve as they continue to grow. In fact, ADHD is brain-based disorder that can persist throughout a person’s lifetime.

Although behaviors associated with ADHD can cause difficulties at home, at school and with friends, there is some good news. The symptoms of ADHD can be detected and addressed before they become too disruptive.

Knowing the signs of ADHD is the first step in getting help for a child in need.
