Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most commonly occurring neurodevelopmental disorders in children. Although ADHD is most often diagnosed in childhood, the condition usually continues into adulthood, and many adults experience ADHD symptoms.
People with ADHD may have trouble sitting still, paying attention, or controlling impulsive behaviors. Without treatment, these symptoms can become more severe and cause problems at school, in the home, or with friends.
At High Desert Psychological Services, patient-centered ADHD counseling helps you manage these symptoms so you or your child can lead a healthy, happy life.
The three main types of ADHD are hyperactive/impulsive, inattentive, and combined.
Symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity include:
They may also interrupt or intrude on others, such as cutting someone off in conversation or using someone else’s things without permission.
Symptoms of inattention include:
They may also forget to complete daily tasks, such as household chores, keeping appointments, or paying bills.
Combined ADHD involves symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity.
At High Desert Psychological Services, your skilled counselor takes the time to understand your specific concerns and helps you identify areas that need improvement. Then, they work with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals.
Common treatments for ADHD include medication, psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, and educational interventions if needed. In some cases, family therapy may also help.
With customized treatment, many people with ADHD are able to successfully manage their symptoms and lead happy lives.
