We are specialists in identifying and treating ADHD.

 

Attention Deficit Disorder, biological in nature, affects people’s ability to focus, regulate their impulses, and maintain stillness. According to the CDCP, around 11% of children between the ages of 4 and 17 have been given an ADHD diagnosis. Recognizing ADHD early can have a significant impact on how well a child does at home, in school and in friendships. The main signs include impulsivity, hyperactivity and difficulty focusing. It might be challenging to determine whether a specific conduct is an indication of ADHD because all kids have the capacity to behave in this manner occasionally. The best method to avoid over-diagnosis or under-diagnosis is to have a child neuropsychologist with specific training analyze the younger.
