ADHD & Attention Struggles
Symptoms, Underlying Causes and Treatment
ADHD is the umbrella term used to describe children (and adults) who experience significant challenges with focus, impulsivity or hyperactivity.
Research to date suggests the underlying reasons for concentration and focus struggles may stem from specific cognitive weaknesses - those brain functions responsible for how well we pay attention, learn, read and remember. A baseline Cognitive Test can pinpoint strong and weak cognitive skills, and provide you with the information you need to help your child overcome attention and focus struggles.
SYMPTOMS OF ADHD
Though symptoms (and clusters of symptoms) of ADHD differs from person to person, these are the symptoms that present most commonly:
being easily distracted
struggling with inhibitory control
taking longer to complete tasks
struggling to maintain attention
making simple errors
not following directions
making impulsive decisions
avoiding tasks that are complicated
difficulty focusing on two tasks simultaneously
hyperactivity (in certain cases)
focus intensely on things they love for long periods of time (hyperfocus)
