ADHD refers to a chronic developmental and behavioral disorder that initially manifests in childhood. ADHD includes a combination of problems, such as difficulty sustaining attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. You may know it by the name attention deficit disorder (ADD). It may begin in early childhood and can continue into adulthood. It is more common in boys as compared to girls. Symptoms sometimes lessen with age. Symptoms have been associated with difficulty in academic, emotional, and social functioning. While treatment won't cure ADHD, it can help a great deal with symptoms. Treatment typically involves medications and behavioral interventions. Early diagnosis and homeopathic treatment can make a big difference in outcome. However, it can be difficult to distinguish between ADHD and normal kid activities. If you spot just a few signs, or the symptoms appear only in some situations, it’s probably not ADHD. On the other hand, if your child shows a number of ADD signs and symptoms that are present across all situations—at home, at school, and at play then it’s time to take a closer look.

Causes

The exact cause is not clear, but ADHD tends to run in families. It has been seen in many cases that children with ADHD often have some family member suffering from this disorder. Some other risk factors for developing ADHD include: Premature delivery, very low birth weight, birth injury (to the brain) and smoking during pregnancy.

Diagnosis

ADHD is diagnosed after a child has shown some or all of the symptoms of ADHD continue for more than six months. There is no single test that can be used to diagnose attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The diagnosis involves a full physical examination, including vision and hearing screenings and gathering information from several sources, such as schools, caregivers, and parents. The homeopathic doctor will consider how a child's behavior compares with that of other children the same age.
