ADHD
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood behavior disorders. While always beginning in childhood, ADHD often becomes a lifelong affliction. Typically, a child with ADHD will display behaviors related to inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Some children exhibit primarily inattentive types of behaviors (ADHD: Inattentive Subtype) while others exhibit primarily Hyperactive and Impulsive types of behaviors (ADHD: Hyperactive-Impulsive Subtype).

Children may also exhibit significant levels of both Inattentive symptoms and Hyperactive-Impulsive symptoms (ADHD: Combined Subtype). Often, treatment for children with ADHD involves a combination of behavioral interventions with pharmacological interventions. Positive behavior supports focus on providing incentives for appropriate behaviors rather than providing punishment for undesirable behaviors. Providing positive behavioral supports as well as a consistent, structured environment are very important in long term management of ADHD symptoms.

At Spectrum Behavioral Health, services provided for ADHD include psychological assessment, behavioral and family interventions, and medication interventions for both children and adults.
