If your child is distracted easily or has trouble concentrating in school, you may be wondering whether they could have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Although ADHD is the official medical term for the behavioral health condition, you may have also heard it referred to as attention deficit disorder (ADD). A few common symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Impulsivity
  • Frequently speaking out of turn
  • Fidgeting and restlessness
  • Inability to play quietly
  • Acting without thinking
  • Problems staying organized
  • Losing things often

The physicians at Lawrence Family Practice Center are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating ADHD/ADD in children of all ages. We encourage you to get in touch with our team in Lawrence, KS to schedule an appointment.

Diagnosis and Treatment for ADD/ADHD

While you may suspect that your child has ADD/ADHD based on their symptoms, only a trained medical professional can provide a reliable diagnosis for the condition. Although there is not one specific measure to diagnose ADHD and ADD, our physicians conduct exams, interviews, and psychological tests that allow us to rule out other conditions, such as autism or mood disorders. There are three types of ADHD:

  • Inattentive type (formerly called ADD)
  • Hyperactive-impulsive type
  • Combination type

Based on your child's individualized diagnosis, your physician will work with you to design a customized treatment plan to manage your child's ADHD. Treatment options include stimulant medication, behavioral therapy, social skills training, family therapy, and parent skills training.
