ADHD - Also Called Attention Deficit Disorder - ADHD Therapy in Palm Beach Gardens For Adults & Children
ADHD, also called attention-deficit disorder, is a behavior disorder, usually first diagnosed in childhood, that is characterized by inattention, impulsivity, and, in some cases, hyperactivity. Contrary to popular belief ADHD can be found in individuals of any age, from adolescent to adult. These symptoms usually occur together; however, one may occur without the other(s). The symptoms of hyperactivity, when present, are almost always apparent by the age of 7 and may be present in very young preschoolers. Inattention or attention-deficit may not be evident until a child faces the expectations of elementary school. Jay R. Goldman treats ADHD without the use of drugs.
