ADHD

A child should be diagnosed with ADHD only if he/she exhibits a variety of inattentive or impulsive behaviors, at a level that is abnormal for children their age, over an extended period and in multiple settings (e.g., home and at school). 


There can be causes for these behaviors other than ADHD, and many children with properly diagnosed with ADHD have other problems, like learning disabilities. 


A comprehensive evaluation is the first step in diagnosing your child properly to get the right supports.
