ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) is a neurodevelopmental disorder (NDD). NDDs affect a child’s nervous system, resulting in abnormal brain function. Signs of ADHD begin in early childhood and can continue into adulthood.

ADHD symptoms may be predominantly inattentive or hyperactive-impulsive. Combined ADHD features both types of symptoms. Children and adolescents can struggle at school and college, and adults face difficulties completing daily tasks.

No lab test can confirm an ADHD diagnosis. The Inspire Behavioral Health team uses its skills and experience to determine whether you or your child have ADHD.

What symptoms does ADHD cause?

People with ADHD are easily distracted, can’t stay focused, and often misplace things. They’re unable to stay organized despite their best efforts. Those with predominantly inattentive ADHD tend to be dreamers, getting lost in their own world and failing to respond when spoken to.

Children with predominantly hyperactive-impulsive ADHD are always on the go. They’re restless, can’t sit still, and often get up when they should be seated in class. They can’t wait their turn and frequently interrupt when others are talking. Parents and teachers may struggle to cope with the disruptive behaviors typical of hyperactive-impulsive ADHD.

Adults with ADHD can find it hard to settle into a job or pursue a career. Relationships are often challenging. Some people with ADHD find daily life so frustrating that they’re frequently irritable or have problems controlling their temper.

Untreated ADHD increases your risk of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. However, proper treatment can significantly improve your or your child’s functioning and quality of life.

How is ADHD treated?

The Inspire Behavioral Health team boasts plenty of experience helping children and adults with ADHD. The condition has no cure but does respond well to effective management.

Most people benefit from medication to help manage ADHD symptoms. Stimulant medicines are often effective in reducing symptom severity. Antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications can also be helpful.

In addition to medication, the Inspire Behavioral Health team provides behavioral therapy and counseling for children and adults struggling with ADHD. Therapy helps you understand your condition and learn to manage unwanted behaviors.
