ADHD is a disorder that makes it difficult for someone to be able to pay attention and control impulse behaviors. It also may make your child restless and almost constantly active. Hyperactivity can improve as a child becomes a teen; other problems such as disorganization, poor impulse control, and inattention to detail often continue through the teen years and into adulthood.
People with ADHD often show an ongoing pattern of three symptom types, which tend to get in the way of functioning or development. The main symptoms are difficulty paying attention, being overactive, and acting without thinking.
There are many combinations of symptoms that may appear and to be mindful of, however showing these signs does not necessarily mean that a child has ADHD. These symptoms can also fit many other diagnoses as well, so the first step is to reach out to a board licensed mental health professional to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
At Cameron Pediatric Counseling, Inc., we offer a one-time assessment for diagnosis. On your follow up appointment, we will provide you with the information and documentation needed in order to advocate for your child and support IEP and 504 efforts and implementation within the school setting.
At Cameron Pediatric Counseling, Inc. we strive to help children and families managing ADHD. We educate families about ADHD and how it affects the child and the family. We also assist the child and their parents in developing new skills, attitudes, and new ways of relating to each other. At Cameron Pediatric Counseling, Inc. we work with parents, teachers, and other professional supports who are helping you and your family to manage ADHD symptoms. We help your child stay organized and follow directions; with tools such as keeping a routine and a schedule, organizing everyday items, using homework and notebook organizers, and provide feedback for what is working and what may need to be changed.
By focusing on the three areas of conflict resolution, motivation and self-efficacy, and self-esteem, our professional counselors at Cameron Pediatric Counseling, Inc. can help provide comprehensive behavioral support to ensure the lifelong success of children with ADHD.
