Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Treatment

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by persistent inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD can significantly impact an individual’s daily life, including their performance at school, work, and relationships.

Excel Psychiatry offers specialized services to diagnose and treat ADHD effectively. Our compassionate and experienced team is dedicated to helping you manage the symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.

Understanding ADHD Signs and Symptoms

ADHD presents in various ways, with three primary subtypes recognized

Predominantly Inattentive
Individuals struggling with attention, focus, and organization may exhibit forgetfulness, distractibility, and difficulty completing tasks.
Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation
Excessive energy, impulsivity, and restlessness characterize this subtype, often leading to impulsive actions and difficulty waiting their turn.
The most common subtype involves a combination of inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms, impacting daily functioning.

How Common is ADHD and When Does it Begin?

ADHD is a condition that affects people from diverse backgrounds. In the United States, about 6.1 million children and 10 million adults have been diagnosed with ADHD. Among these diagnoses, boys are more often identified as having ADHD compared to girls.

While the signs of ADHD usually start showing during childhood, it’s important to know that these symptoms don’t always go away as someone gets older. In fact, they can continue to affect individuals as they grow up and become adults. 

This means that the challenges posed by ADHD can impact not only a person’s personal life but also their professional journey. So, understanding the onset of ADHD and its prevalence sheds light on the experiences of those who live with this condition.

Comprehensive Diagnosis and Testing

At Excel Psychiatry, we prioritize accurate ADHD diagnosis through a comprehensive evaluation. This process considers an individual’s symptoms, medical history, and input from parents, teachers, or caregivers. Our team utilizes established criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to ensure precise diagnosis.

We also employ Connor’s Continuous Performance Test (CPT), a computer-based tool that assesses attention and impulsivity. This test measures an individual’s ability to maintain focus and control impulsive responses. Combined with clinical assessment, the CPT aids in confirming the presence of ADHD.
