Child’s ADD/ADHD



Because ADD and ADHD symptoms vary widely from person to person, it can be difficult to spot in children who are still developing self-management skills. While hyperactivity is a well-known symptom, an inability to control attention—whether focusing on or breaking away from a task—sensitivity to rejection, object impermanence, and an inability to predict or sense the flow of time are all strong indicators that a child could benefit from professional evaluation and treatment. While some parents want to avoid interventions to keep their children from feeling different, it can instead start an unhealthy cycle of frustration, self-doubt, and self-medicating through disruptive behaviors and harmful substances. While there’s no single treatment that’s proven to work for everyone, there’s an effective balance of behavioral, lifestyle, and medicinal interventions that can set every ADHD child up for a lifetime of success.
