AD/HD Attention Deficit with/without Hyperactivity Disorder
What is attention deficit disorder?
There are three types of this disorder:
- Primarily Inattentive
- Primarily Hyperactive-Impulsive
- Combined Form
Approximately 8-10% of all children and adults are affected with the disorder. Children with ADD/ADHD may have difficulties in school, home and other activities. ADD/ADHD in adults often goes undiagnosed and can cause problems on the job, in relationships and with other daily functions. The affects of this disorder also extend to their parents, families, teachers, classmates, friends and co-workers.
The symptoms of ADD/ADHD and related disorders may result in the consequences of poor self-esteem, academic underachievement, and/or behavior problems, as well as work and relationship problems later in life. Do you know the common ADD/ADHD signs in children? Do you know what ADHD treatments are available to you or your child who has attention deficit disorder?
Individuals with ADD/ADHD typically have a higher than average I.Q. and the sadness and frustration brought about by the inability to express this and/or behavior problems which are not under their control, is painful to watch. Parents want to help, but may feel frustration when they are unable to, or don’t know what to do.
Additionally, parents and teachers often experience these same feelings as they struggle to help those with this disorder. Disruption of family dynamics and strain put on parents by the feelings of anger, frustration, and undeserved guilt are often present.
