Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that commonly begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It is characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that can significantly impact an individual's daily functioning.

The main symptoms of ADHD fall into two categories:

  1. Inattention:

    • Difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or play activities.
    • Frequently making careless mistakes in school or other activities due to lack of attention.
    • Trouble organizing tasks and activities.
    • Easily distracted by unrelated stimuli.
    • Forgetfulness in daily activities.
  2. Hyperactivity and Impulsivity:

    • Excessive fidgeting or restlessness.
    • Inability to remain seated in situations where it is expected.
    • Difficulty engaging in quiet activities.
    • Impulsive decision-making without considering consequences.
    • Interrupting others during conversations or activities.


The exact cause of ADHD is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, neurological, and environmental factors. ADHD can have a significant impact on academic performance, relationships, and occupational functioning. However, with appropriate interventions, which may include behavioral therapies, educational support, and, in some cases, medication, individuals with ADHD can learn to manage their symptoms effectively and lead fulfilling lives.

It's important to note that ADHD is a neurodevelopmental condition, and individuals with ADHD may also possess unique strengths, creativity, and talents. Early identification and intervention are crucial for managing ADHD symptoms and providing support tailored to individual needs. We are now offering ADHD testing for patients who believe they may be dealing with the disorder.
