ADHD

We get to the bottom of your child’s ADHD before developing a treatment plan customized to their unique set of needs.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a cognitive disorder characterized by a pattern of inattentive and/or hyperactive and impulsive behaviour. The inattentive subtype of this condition is defined by poor focus, disorganization, and inability to stay on task. The hyperactive and impulsive subtype of this condition is defined by hyperactive or manic energy, fidgeting, restlessness, impulsive behaviour, excessive movement and inappropriate/excessive talk or laughter.

ADHD is a multifactorial condition. This means that every child is unique and the causative and contributing factors that present in ADHD symptoms are specific and unique to each child. Proper testing and a careful assessment are essential for determining the best methods of treatment for your child.
