Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect a child's ability to succeed in school and can have a negative effect on their social relationships in and out of school.
Treatment for ADHD takes a multifaceted approach consisting of medication, counseling, and of course a professional diagnosis. If you are interested in the available ADHD treatment options in Stuart, FL, you can contact Coastal Integrative Medicine with Dr. Melissa Singer and Dr. Lisa Rankin.
Medication is an important aspect of ADHD treatment, and while medication cannot cure the condition the goal of the treatment is to help better manage the more invasive symptoms, typically those of inattentiveness and hyperactivity.
There are different types of medications that are often prescribed but a large number of them are stimulants, which can be used to boost the function of the brain's neurotransmitters.
ADHD is not typically treated with medication alone, therapy and counseling are major parts of any treatment strategy. The focus is on behavior therapy, social skills, as well as counseling that involves both parents and children, helping them to better manage behaviors and to deal with difficult times.
Seeking professional help to assist with a diagnosis is also a key facet of ADHD treatment. Many of the common symptoms of ADHD can sometimes be conflated with normal behaviors, especially in growing children. Similarly, on the other side of the coin, some ADHD symptoms can be mistaken for laziness, rudeness, and other problems.
DHD is characterized by impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity, and while related symptoms can be typical in many children, if these are interfering with their school or social relationships then it may be time to seek help.
