ADHD disorder

ADHD is a condition in which your child has difficulty concentrating and staying focused.

An ADHD child finds it difficult to follow directions, stay on task and stay still. There are many misconceptions when it comes to ADHD ADD disorder.

Common Misdiagnoses of ADHD Disorder

The term ADHD can get tossed around by people who misdiagnose and mislabel children.

If you are concerned about your child's development and behaviour you should discuss your concerns with an experienced healthcare professional.

Although there are many ADHD ADD disorder checklists available, child care providers, school administers, teachers and even friends and family who attempt to diagnose your child with these checklists are unqualified to do so.

An ADHD ADD disorder diagnosis can only come from an experienced professional who conducts in-depth assessments, thorough background checks and interviews and a full physical examination of your child.

Symptoms associated with ADHD ADD disorder may actually be caused by a separate medical condition, such as diabetes, vision or hearing loss, or a low blood sugar.

Your child who appears to have ADHD may actually be suffering from another disorder such as autism, or they may have anxiety, sleep difficulties or learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

Mislabeling or misdiagnosing your child can set your child back from valuable treatment. You are responsible for ensuring that your child receives the best possible assessment.
