ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Shortcuts
ADHD is a behavioural disorder which often becomes obvious in early childhood. The behaviours are due to underlying problems of poor attention, hyperactivity and impulsivity.

Symptoms

About 1 in 3 children with diagnosis of ADHD can grow out of their condition and not require any treatment when they are adults. However, some individuals are unable to enter this more focused mode and always experience their minds as fast moving. And this is highly important in our demanding lifestyles. Sometimes there is not only inability to focus but also impulsivity, hyperactivity or lack of organization skills. Symptoms include:

 

•Difficulty Concentrating or Following Details
•Not Being Able to Focus when others are Speaking
•Poor Organisation Skills
•General Forgetfulness
•Restlessness and Fidgeting
•Inability to Sit or Lie Still
•Speaking Too Loudly or Quickly
•General Impatience
•Tendency to Interrupt
•Irritability at Small Things
•Impulsivity
•risk taking behaviour

Diagnosis

There is no single, simple, definite test for ADHD. The diagnostic process will usually involve two consultations done by the psychiatrist. The diagnosis is made by recognising patterns of behaviour, obtaining school reports or collateral information from childhood and completing a specialist diagnostic tool.

Risk Assessment & Prevention

A comprehensive, tailored care plan is offered, which may include pharmacologic (consultation with a psychiatrist) and non-pharmacologic (consultation with a psychotherapist) management interventions. Furthermore, there are also situations where a patient can benefit from a combination of both treatments. Medications can help to reduce hyperactivity and improve concentration.
