ADD/ADHD Counseling

We all know children and adults who can’t sit still, who never seem to listen, who blurt out inappropriate comments, or don’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them.

While it’s normal for anybody to forget their homework, daydream during class or act without thinking, inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. ADHD makes it difficult for a person to inhibit their spontaneous responses, including everything from movement to speech to assertiveness.

Some people with ADHD may be constantly in-motion, bouncing off the walls and disrupting others around them. Others with ADHD may sit quietly, with their attention miles away.

There are three primary characteristics of ADHD: Inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity, though all three aren’t always prominent in one person.

People with ADHD may:

  • Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
  • Appear not to be listening when spoken to
  • Constantly fidget and squirm
  • Talk excessively
  • Act without thinking
  • Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
  • Have a quick temper or “short fuse”

Whether or not your family member’s symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. Children or adults who can’t focus or control themselves or get into trouble at school often find it hard to make friends. These frustrations can later lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family.

Treatment can make a dramatic difference in your family member’s symptoms. With the right support, your family member can get on track for success in all areas of life.
