ADHD is a disorder which can affect a child’s ability to perform various important tasks, especially in school. It makes children lose their focus and obstructs their ability to pay attention. The first and foremost way of dealing with this is by educating yourself as a parent and then, spreading awareness to others. Here, are 3 questions you might have about ADHD.
- Are there any subtypes of ADHD?
ADHD is of 3 types.
- Combined ADHD: This involves symptoms like inability to concentrate and hyperactive or impulsive behavior.
- Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD: This is mostly marked by hyperactive behavior without inattentiveness.
- Inattentive ADHD or ADD: This can be identified by impaired concentration.
- What are the common symptoms of ADHD?
Those children suffering from ADHD show signs of impulsiveness, hyperactivity, and inattention, moving and squirming constantly. They are often easily distracted, find it difficult to play quietly, never seem to listen attentively or talk excessively and might also interrupt conversations and activities. These children also have other conditions like oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, depression, or anxiety which make it difficult to diagnose the ADHD. But since we have a more comprehensive approach of treatment, many people put their faith in us.
- What are the repercussions of ADHD?
There are various ways in which ADHD can affect a child like failure to perform at school, job and other tasks of daily life. They might be exposed to accidents and injuries, substance abuse and other sexual risks. Apart from that, they may be exposed to social failures and family issues too.
