Atlanta ADHD Treatment
ADHD is a very common problem described by inattentiveness or over-activity. This is a disorder which is diagnosed in children. We can say about 3-5% of school going children are affected by this disease and it is more commonly found in boys than in girls. The exact cause for this ailment has not yet been found. Researchers have speculated different sources for the disorder and have also drawn a conclusion that children suffering from ADHD have some difference in brain activity that are not common in other children. Often times, headaches, depression and lack of sleep are misinterpreted as ADHD. The children suffering from ADHD usually have at least one other developmental or behavioral problem associated with it.
Symptoms of ADHD include hyperactivity, impulsive behavior and lack of attention.
The main goal in identifying the disease is to diagnose the very specific symptoms seen in these children. Children should be suffering from more than 6-7 symptoms of ADHD and should be under the age of 7. The symptoms should be observed for more than 6 months.
Treatment for ADHD:
There are many treatments available for ADHD and can be completely cured if the child is taken proper care. The best cure for ADHD is medication and behavioral treatment which ideally should go hand-in-hand. It is very important that these patients are taken extra care and are shown compassion during their treatment. Psycho-stimulants, which are the most common type of drug prescribed for ADHD, can have a calming effect on the patient and prove to be very effective.
Healthy life requires healthy intake of food, good habits, care and love. A healthy mind and body go hand-in-hand in the ridding of disease.
