There are disorders that people suffer from, some can be treated while for others some people live with them and can only learn to manage them. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is one form of disorder that can be experienced in both childhood and adulthood. For children who have the disorder, they will have a hard time paying attention in class. There are more cases of ADHD in boys rather than in girls and the cases can be in the early school life. When the child is growing they have the problem of setting goals and being organized. ADHD also makes it hard for the child to manage their time.
Therapy and medication helps treat the disorder but as for a total cure there is none yet. For specialists that deal with the disorder, they recommend acupuncture. Acupuncture works by strengthening the parasympathetic nervous system . For children suffering with the disorder the symptoms may vary. A child will show poor concentration levels in the activities that they are involved in and in the first cases a teacher or the care giver will be the first person to identify it because they are the people that spend a lot of time with the child. Impulsive behavior is another common symptom for children with ADHD. Hyperactivity is a symptom as well. When it comes to the drugs that are used to treat ADHD, most parents are not sure about medicating their children for a long time. The side effects of the drugs is what worries many parents. Some symptoms that children with attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder experience can be carried into adulthood as well such as hyperactivity. Adults with ADHD have a hard time in paying attention to issues.
They may have a hard time coping at the work place especially in tasks that require them to exhibit commitment and attention. Adults will usually forget meetings and miss deadlines and this will not seat well with their employers. Lacking the ability to control impulse behaviors may be witnessed when waiting in long queues and mood swings. Similar to children with ADHD adults with the disorder also have a hard time staying organized and making priorities of their schedules and things that they have to do. Poor concentration also brings with it the inability to complete tasks. One observable symptom of ADHD in adults is their difficulty in handling stressful situations. To know without a doubt that your loved one has ADHD you need to have diagnosis from a qualified person.
