Millions of children are living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or adhd across the United States and around the world. For many of these children the only treatment that they have been exposed to is that of traditional, synthetic ADHD medications, such as Ritalin, Adderall, Strattera, etc. Children with ADHD are usually diagnosed once they begin to attend school, around the age of six years. This is due in large part to the added pressures placed upon them in the academic environment. Usually the child’s teacher will suggest to the parent or guardian that the child should receive an ADHD evaluation.
The symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or adhd include inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Not every child diagnosed with the disorder will experience the hyperactive and/or impulsive characteristics, however. ADHD is divided into three categories as follows:
- Inattentive type (has difficulty maintain concentration and focus)
- Hyperactive/Impulsive type (does not consider consequences and is always ‘on the go’)
- Combined type (displays symptoms of both other subtypes, namely inattentiveness and hyperactivity/impulsivity)
The majority of ADHD diagnoses are for the combined type.
Unfortunately there is no single means of diagnosing the disorder which means it cannot be diagnosed with a blood test, for example. The diagnostic process is very intense and thorough which is why it is a long and drawn-out one. Along with testing your child for ADHD the mental health professional will also run other tests that will determine if your child has a learning disability. Very often ADHD is accompanied by a learning disability although it is not one itself.
There are many different treatment options available for ADHD children these days. Gone are the days when synthetic psycho-stimulant medications were the only option. Today’s parents of ADHD children can choose to treat their child’s symptoms more holistically, with homeopathic remedies, for example.
