ADHD

Many children and teens deal with challenges of being unable to focus, pay attention and being full of energy. As young children who are developing in learning, characteristics of high energy and distracted minds can be common. However when these symptoms become prevalent and begin to affect school performance, self-esteem and relationships, it may be time to look deeper into these challenges. Millions of children, teens and often adults have Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, commonly known as ADHD.  Many symptoms of ADHD can be identified early in childhood and with proper diagnosis, care and treatment, strategies can be learned to help them be successful.

At NMG Pediatrics, we work with your child’s specific symptoms and needs, working with you as a parent to develop treatment strategies to help them be their best relationally, cognitively and enjoy everyday life. Treatment can include medication, behavioral intervention and counseling. The earlier diagnosis and treatment can occur, the more successful the outcome for your child.

Many signs of ADHD can be seen as early as 2 and 3 years of age. Symptoms may include:

  • Difficulty in paying attention
  • Daydreaming
  • Not listening and difficulty in completing or following instructions
  • Has challenges in organizing tasks or activities
  • Frequent forgetfulness and losing items (such as toys or books)
  • Frequently unable to complete schoolwork, tasks or chores.
  • Distracted easily.
  • Talking excessively.
