ADHD/Learning Disabilities

Recognizing ADHD in Children

  • Inattention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsivity

These are the three hallmarks of ADHD in children.

While occasional fidgeting, forgetfulness, and bursts of energy fall under the general parameters of childhood, recurrent or chronic episodes may be symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This common disorder affects approximately 10 percent of school-aged children in the U.S.

Signs typically show up prior to age 7 and are present across all situations and activities – not merely from time to time.

Children with ADHD can often intently focus on those activities they enjoy, but have trouble staying on task in regards to topics they find boring. They may appear disobedient, when the fact is that they may be doing their best to behave, and cannot help themselves.

Hyperactivity is a leading sign of ADHD in children, and often manifests as constant motion and excessive chattiness.

Self-control and impulsivity issues include constant interruptions, blurting out answers in class or guessing rather than attempting to solve a problem, and acting before thinking something through.

Inattentiveness may include daydreaming and intense difficulty with listening, attention to detail, and organizational skills.

Recognizing these signs and symptoms, and seeking treatment are tantamount in providing the assistance your child needs, and the environment in which they can grow and learn.

KinderMender can help.

Diagnosing ADHD in Children

KinderMender provides initial screening, diagnosis, and treatment for ADHD in children, whenever possible, and can also provide referrals to a specialist when necessary.

Medication is often prescribed for treatment, but other avenues involve behavior therapy, education, exercise, and nutritional guidance.

  • Appointments are scheduled every 3 months for medication management, ultimately moving to every 6 months
  • All ADHD prescriptions must be picked up, in-person, monthly, with 48 hours of advance notice required for refill requests
  • Teacher and parent forms must be filled out in advance of the first appointment

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
