ADHD or Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is a chronic neuro-behavioral condition that has been affecting children and adults alike. The condition is known to begin in childhood and goes on till adulthood. It is the most common disorder that most expert psychologists believe that it is sometimes even over-diagnosed.
Since ADHD issue is highly misunderstood, therefore, it is highly important to understand the symptoms of ADHD before you seek ADHD counselling:
It is important to note that the children with ADHD conditions can exhibit one or two or even all three behaviours and this can change from time-to-time. It is normal for children to be absent minded. However, if this behaviour persists beyond the specific age bracket, then it's time you seek help from a professional ADHD counsellor.
And if you haven’t been diagnosed ever, and want to know if you have adult ADHD then, ask yourself a few questions just to keep a check:
Many expert psychologists and online counsellors have long researched the cause of ADHD but the exact reason is still unknown. However, there are studies that show ADHD can occur from a combination of genetics/biology, brain trauma, poor nutrition or environment. Also, if a mother has had abuse issues - alcohol or drugs during pregnancy, brain injury, and consumed food additives, it tends to have effects on the brain of the child.
There is no definitive test for ADHD issues, but a trained psychologist or a professional child therapist, or child psychiatrist, should be able to evaluate your child on the basis of his/her behaviour. This will help you to rule our other mental health conditions like depression, learning disabilities, and behavioral problems with ADHD. An expert ADHD counsellor will help you evaluate the condition, possible causes, and treatment options for you and your child. This may include parenting counselling or anger management counselling too.
It is very important for you to know that there is no specific ADHD treatment but ADHD counselling from a trained child psychologist will help you curb and manage most of its symptoms so that it doesn't negatively affect his/her life. Some of the treatments include counselling, lifestyle changes like healthy diet, proper sleep, regular exercise and medication.
