    ADHD – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

    (Credit to American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry)

    Does your child have trouble sitting still? Act without thinking first? Or often start but not finish things? Do these things cause problems for your child at school or home? If the answer is, “yes” your child might have a common childhood medical condition called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

    Many children have restless behaviors that are typical of ADHD. When fidgeting, poor concentration, or impulsiveness begin disrupting performance in school, at home, or in relationships with other children, the cause might be ADHD. Or, there might be a different cause. Seeing your child’s doctor and getting the right diagnosis and treatment can help your child do better in the classroom, on the playground, and at home.

    To be a good advocate for your child, you need to learn as much as you can about ADHD.

    What is ADHD?

    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is a common childhood illness that can be treated. It is a health condition involving biologically active substances in the brain. Studies show that ADHD may affect certain areas of the brain that allow us to solve problems, plan ahead, understand others’ actions, and control our impulses

    Evaluations for ADHD

    When a child has ADHD, the parents, child, teachers, and doctors need to work together as a team to understand the disorder and develop the appropriate treatment plan to allow your child to reach his or her full potential.

    If you request an evaluation for ADHD, please download and complete the following information/forms before your ADHD visit. Please return ALL papers (including the teacher assessment) to Kiddie West Pediatric Center. This is an extensive evaluation that will require you and your child to be at our office for at least an hour.
