ADHD Resource Center

Almost all children have times when their behavior veers out of control. They may speed about in constant motion, make noise nonstop, refuse to wait their turn, and crash into everything around them. At other times they may drift as if in a daydream, failing to pay attention or finish what they start.

However for some children, these kinds of behaviors are more than on occasional problem. Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have behavior problems that are so frequent and severe that they interfere with their ability to live normal lives.

What is ADHD?

ADHD is a condition of the brain that makes it difficult for children to control their behavior. It is one of the most common chronic conditions of childhood. It affects 4% to 12% of school-aged children. About 3 times more boys than girls are diagnosed with ADHD.

At Pediatric Associates, we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). If you think your child has ADHD, talk to your pediatrician to determine a treatment plan to help your child lead a happy and healthy life.
