ADHD and tic disorders have rapidly increased recently. ADHD includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty maintaining attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. If the symptom is not treated early, it could be easily aggravated or combined with other symptoms.

ADHD is a chronic condition and frequently continues to adulthood. Therefore, early medical treatment is critical.

Childhood ADHD

It has not been known what causes ADHD. The only possible explanation is that a child can control compulsive behavior or emotions due to imbalanced brain development. In many cases, ADHD is combined with other symptoms like tic disorder, major depression and learning disorder. As the symptoms occur, the child experiences an unstable state of mind, causing attention deficit and hyperactivity.

The treatment plan will include close monitoring of problematic behaviors that bother studying and playing with other children and providing treatment to keep the child’s brain in balance.

ADHD self-tests

ADHD tends to onset before the age of seven. If a child shows behavioral signs such as trouble with attention, compulsive behaviors or hyperactivity, it is worth suspecting ADHD.
