About ADHD in Children
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is a condition that affects the brain, specifically affecting how people think and act. Children with ADHD usually have problems with focusing and remembering things that were said or done around them. They may also have some difficulty sitting still or being quiet. Some patients can get distracted easily when listening, thus making learning difficult for them. In addition, they can get bored after a few minutes of doing something, unless it is something they enjoy.
ADHD is called a neurological developmental disorder because it affects the development of the nerves. Experts have published in the American Journal of Psychiatry that about one in twenty children in the world has ADHD. In the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in every fourteen children has ADHD, including one in every ten boys and one in every twenty-five girls.
ADHD Intervention in Bloomington IL
ADHD is most commonly found in children, but many adults also have the disorder. Studies have shown that a little less than half of the children with ADHD get better when they become adults. However, intervention and treatment research is currently being conducted, advanced, and applied in many medical and psychological laboratories and clinical practices, such that the success rates for treatment should improve in the future. In addition, most people who have ADHD can also be treated for other mental disorders, such as oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, dyslexia, Tourette syndrome, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, and personality disorders.
