ADHD stands for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a neurodevelopment disorder that affects children and can continue into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have difficulty with attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.

If you suspect your child might have ADHD, it is important to consult with a Clinical Psychologist. They will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, considering your child’s behaviour, development, and medical history. Only a qualified professional can provide an accurate diagnosis.

No, ADHD is not caused by bad parenting or a lack of discipline. It is a medical condition that involves differences in brain structure and function. Parenting and discipline strategies may need to be adjusted to support children with ADHD, but they are not the cause.

No, excessive screen time does not cause ADHD. However, it is generally recommended to limit screen time and ensure a healthy balance of activities for children. Setting boundaries around screen use and encouraging other forms of play, such as outdoor activities and creative pursuits, can promote overall well-being.

Collaborating with your child’s school and teachers is crucial. Developing an individualized education plan (IEP) can outline specific accommodations and strategies to support your child’s learning needs. Regular communication with the school and advocating for your child’s needs can make a positive difference.
