Recognizing ADHD In Childhood

Within the ADHD spectrum there are three behaviour categories; Hyperactivity, Impulsiveness and Inattention.

Childhood ADHD causes the following behaviours...

Hyperactivity

Your child seems constantly in motion and is unable to stay seated, stay still or play quietly. He constantly fidgets, squirms, runs and jumps inappropriately.

Impulsiveness

Your child acts without thinking of the consequences, such as running into traffic. He interrupt conversations and children's play, blurts out answers inappropriately, and has difficulty waiting for their turn. He also reacts to situations with extreme emotion.

Inattention

Your child does not appear to listen when being spoken to. He is easily distracted and has difficulty completing tasks. He is unorganized and often loses or misplaces his things.

Treating ADHD In Childhood

Doctors believe that ADHD is a condition which causes a chemical imbalance in your child's brain.

Certain medications have been shown to affectively counteract this chemical imbalance and improve your child's ability to concentrate, stay focused and stay still.

Some common medication prescribed for childhood ADHD includes Ritalin, Focalin, Metadate and Dexedrine.

Childhood ADHD has also been affectively treated with various psychological treatments. Some of the more effective psychological treatments for childhood ADHD include...

Behaviour Modification; your child's behaviour is charted and he is rewarded for positive behaviour. Privileges may be removed for negative behaviour. This therapy helps your child stay organized, focused and motivated.

Social Skills Training; through therapy sessions your child develops stronger social skills, such as taking turns, waiting for turns and sharing, which allows him to have more positive social connections.

Special Education; your child's learning environment is organized in the school setting in a structured manner with consistent routines.

ADHD children may receive a combination of medical and psychological treatment as well.
