Millions of children and adults across the country suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The conditions are collectively known as ADHD, and they cause patients to become easily distracted or unable to focus for long periods of time. Those with ADHD experience these symptoms and also suffer from chronic hyperactivity. Though some children with ADHD have symptoms that taper off with age, many adults continue to suffer from ADHD long into adulthood.
There are several overlapping symptoms between PTSD and ADHD, including concerns with executive functioning and restlessness. There also are some defining differences, such as intrusive memories and flashbacks.
That boys are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls? They are also 2.8 times more likely to be on medication for ADHD than girls are. According to the American Psychiatric Association, at least, 3 – 7 percent of school-aged kids suffer from ADHD. However, the Centers for Disease Control have placed estimations even higher at more than 9 percent.
Should my child or I be treated for ADHD?
You or your child may need to be treated for ADHD if you exhibit certain symptoms of the condition. Among children, this includes being inattentive, hyperactive and impulsive, or only hyperactive and impulsive, but capable of focusing attention. For example, children with ADHD may interrupt conversations, fidget, or overlook details. Adults with the disorder may exhibit similar symptoms, which may be evident by frequent job changes, inability to complete a task, disorganization, and low self-control.
What should I expect during treatment for ADHD?
Behavioral therapy and medication are the standards for treatment of ADHD. However, it is essential that you receive an accurate diagnosis before exploring these types of treatments and therapy. However, those who are diagnosed with ADHD and also receiving treatment may experience a significant improvement in symptoms, resulting in better grades in school or greater productivity at work.
