Childhood Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Childhood Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that requires accurate diagnosis and effective treatment approaches. Diagnosis involves a comprehensive assessment of symptoms, including inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, based on established diagnostic criteria. Symptoms must manifest before the age of 12 and persist for at least six months to meet diagnostic criteria. Evaluation typically includes input from parents, teachers, and caregivers to assess behavior across various settings. ADHD is categorized into predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, or combined presentations, each requiring tailored treatment. Behavioral therapy, including psychoeducation, parent training, and cognitive-behavioral approaches, can be effective in managing symptoms. ADHD often co-occurs with other conditions like anxiety, depression, or learning disabilities, necessitating comprehensive care.
