ADHD Coaching

The terms Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are often used interchangeably. They are actually the same condition but were once believed to be separate. Over the last three decades, the all-encompassing name officially became ADHD.

 

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder has evolved to enclose more of the symptoms that persons with this disorder experience. ADHD is a developmental disorder identified by lack of attention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. These characteristics interfere with a student’s ability to learn and apply specific skills or sets of information. While ADHD is diagnosed in childhood, it also occurs in adults. It ultimately affects the development of personal, social, academic, and occupational functioning.

 

 

3 Types of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder)

 

 

Predominantly inattentive:

 

Persons with inattentive ADHD experience an inability to sustain focus, comprehend detailed instructions, and have a hard time organizing tasks and activities because of limited attention span and are easily distracted, forgetful, or prone to procrastination.

 

 

Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive:

 

Persons with hyperactive ADHD have a continuous need to move such as tapping, fidgeting, or talking even in inappropriate situations. Adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder may feel uncomfortable or restless.

 

 

Combined

 

Persons with combined-type ADHD manifest six or more symptoms of inattention and six or more symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity.

What are the causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

It is not entirely known what causes ADHD, although there are many factors that are accepted to be responsible, such as:

 

  • Genetics: Several researchers suggest that ADHD is genetic; there is a high probability that a child has ADHD if the parents and siblings have ADHD themselves.
  • Drug Exposure
  • Nicotine and Cigarette Smoking
  • Low birth weight
  • Brain Damage
  • Nutritional (food additives)
  • Premature birth

 

Note: ADHD is a biological disorder based in the brain, too much sugar, or playing too many video games do not cause a child to acquire Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

How is a Child Diagnosed for ADHD

 

It is difficult to get a diagnosis for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder because the symptoms are similar to the normal behaviors in young children.

 

The diagnosis of ADHD is clinical and can only be determined by a licensed clinician, such as a psychologist, which will include a comprehensive medical, educational developmental, and psychological evaluation. A child must show six of nine symptoms of inattention and hyper-impulsivity for a diagnosis to be given. While in adults, the symptoms have to be experienced since the age of twelve.

 

How is ADHD Treated

 

No treatments are found to cure ADHD, but many exist which can assist with its management. Some of them include

 

Medication

 

  • ADHD medications help in reducing hyperactivity and impulsivity, and improving the patient’s ability to work, focus, and learn. Prescriptions for both children and adults are either stimulant or non-stimulant.

 

Stimulants

 

  • It is the most common type of medication to treat ADHD for it’s effectiveness at reducing symptoms. Stimulants act fast, and there are only a few side effects.

 

Non-stimulants

 

  • Physicians prescribe non-stimulant medication to those who do not experience the effectiveness of stimulants or suffer severely from their side effects.

 

Therapy

 

  • A doctor or mental health professional may incorporate behavioral treatment. Structure, routine, and expectations that are clear would be good for a child with ADHD. This helps a child gain a sense of responsibility. This will also improve the social skills of persons living with ADHD through sharing and connecting with peers.
