ADHD Treatments

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a frequently diagnosed neurological condition that often begins in childhood and persists into adulthood.

Individuals who live with ADHD face a lot of adversities not just in school, but also in the way they get along with their family members, and how they manage their social relationships. It even impacts their professional lives.

Getting evidence-based tools and interventions for ADHD will provide symptomatic relief and enhance the quality of daily life.

Our team of therapists and psychologists at Aspiring Families specializes in treating these neurological conditions.

Types of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD is not the same for everyone. All patients—children and adults—experience it differently. The symptoms of this disorder are categorized into two main types: inattentive and hyperactive. Some patients only show common symptoms of distractibility without hyperactivity, while others struggle with both.

That’s the main reason why it often gets misdiagnosed or flies under the radar. It is very important to have an accurate evaluation to understand exactly which challenges the patient is going through. The two types of ADHD are better known as Predominantly Inattentive and Hyperactive-Impulsive.

Individuals who have the Inattentive type of ADHD can experience symptoms such as:
Those with Hyperactive-Impulsiveness can experience the following symptoms:

It is vital to be accurately assessed and diagnosed to know your strengths and vulnerabilities to create effective change.

Neuropsychological ADHD Testing and Assessment

If you or your child are experiencing the symptoms of ADHD, we recommend consulting a professional for an accurate evaluation.

It is important to know that ADHD can be easily misdiagnosed without a formal evaluation. A clinical interview is usually insufficient, as symptoms presenting as ADHD could be related to underlying anxiety, stress, learning disabilities, executive functioning, trauma, and even giftedness.

Our panel of psychologists will offer you a comprehensive evaluation and assessment for ADHD before providing treatment, to more accurately understand and treat the presenting struggles.

Diagnosis and Evaluation

ADHD is not the only condition that is characterized by the symptoms of inattention or hyperactivity. There are a number of other mental health disorders that can bring about the same, or similar symptoms of ADHD. That’s why pinpointing the cause of a patient’s condition requires a lot more than just a symptom-check, or an interview.

During the evaluation process, alternative explanations that point towards the presence of ADHD symptoms need to be ruled out first, before concluding with the diagnosis. What makes it complicated is that most children or adults experiencing these symptoms may also have a history of anxiety, depression, or learning disabilities, among other things.

That’s why our clinicians are extremely thorough and strictly use an evidence-based, effective approach when it comes to diagnosing ADHD and similar conditions.
