ADD and ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder affects plenty of children world wide. ADHD is usually diagnosed in children and teens but is very rarely found in adults.

Usually with ADHD your doctor will give you a neuro scan to test the brains activity. They will show you a video of planes normally like the plane shown.

Sometimes ADHD is quite difficult to diagnose. The symptoms may be normal, everyday behavior. Everyone is tired and fidgety at times. Being moody and withdrawn is often normal teen behavior. The younger children are usually loud and hyper.

"ADHD medication is normally the main method for treating ADHD" (www.healthyplace.com/adhd). It helps people concentrate, and calm down with the condition at hand. It also helps them to better control their impulses. The medication helps them function better in everyday life.

Teens with ADHD will usually begin to plan for a job or career as soon as possible. There are tests that you can take that help teens learn about what jobs may interest them and suit them quite well. After the results the teens can speak with their counselor about further more information needed.
