ADHD Counseling

We all know someone who can’t sit still, who never seems to listen, who blurts out inappropriate comments, or doesn’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them.

While it’s normal to forget homework, daydream during class or act without thinking, inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. ADHD makes it difficult for a person to inhibit their spontaneous responses, including everything from movement to speech to assertiveness.

Some adults and children with ADHD may be constantly in-motion, bouncing off the walls and disrupting others around them. Others with ADHD may sit quietly, with their attention miles away.

There are three primary characteristics of ADHD: Inattentiveness, Hyperactivity and Impulsivity, though all three aren’t always prominent in one person.

Adults and Children with ADHD may:

  • Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
  • Appear not to be listening when spoken to
  • Constantly fidget and squirm
  • Talk excessively
  • Act without thinking
  • Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
  • Have a quick temper or “short fuse”

Whether or not symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. Adults and children who can’t focus or control themselves or get into trouble often find it hard to make friends. These frustrations can lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family.

Treatment can make a dramatic difference in these symptoms. With the right support, we can get you or your child on track for success in all areas of life.
