Alpharetta ADHD Treatment

Having a child that has been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be challenging. As a parent, you may not know what a diagnosis of ADHD really means for your child or how to provide them with support. If you are an adult who has been diagnosed with adult ADHD, you may have questions about treatment options. At CNSL, our Alpharetta ADHD treatment professionals provide services for children and adults who have been diagnosed with ADHD. To learn more about our therapies and how we can help, call us today.

What Is ADHD?

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders diagnosed in children. While the condition usually is first present in childhood, it is not uncommon for it to last into adulthood. Characterized by an inability to pay attention, disruptive and impulsive behaviors, and hyperactivity (the inability to be still for long periods of time), ADHD can be very disruptive to a child’s learning and development. Some of the signs and symptoms of ADHD in children include:

  • Constant daydreaming
  • Forgetfulness
  • Fidgeting and inability to sit still
  • Talking too much
  • Having difficulting taking turns or getting along with others
  • Taking unnecessary risks

What Are the Causes of ADHD?

Researchers are not sure of the precise causes of ADHD. Some of the theories as to what may cause ADHD include:

  • Low birth weight
  • Premature birth
  • Alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy
  • Exposure to environmental risks at a young age
  • Brain injury

Some people believe that ADHD could be caused by things like eating too much sugar, watching too much TV, or family chaos. However, there is no scientific research to support this theory at this time. 

Treating ADHD

For both adults and children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, there are treatment options available. Treatment options for ADHD for children include:

  • Medication. One treatment option for ADHD is medication. Medication is often used in combination with other treatment options, including behavioral therapy and lifestyle changes. It is important that an accurate diagnosis is made before medication is prescribed. 
  • Lifestyle changes. Sometimes, lifestyle changes can help to manage ADHD. For both children and adults, healthy eating habits and regular exercise are important. Limiting screen time and getting enough sleep are also important. 
  • Behavioral therapy. Behavioral therapy is often the first line of treatment for ADHD, especially for children. Behavioral therapy can help children channel energy in more appropriate ways, manage time, plan tasks, and stay on top of schoolwork. 
  • Training for parents. In addition to behavioral therapy for children, behavioral therapy for parents as well. This type of therapy can help train parents on how to respond to children, disrupt tantrums, and manage behaviors.
