Manchester Pediatric Care For ADHD/ADD
Helping Your Child Succeed
If your child seems to have a difficult time focusing, they could have
ADHD/ADD. ADHD is a disorder characterized by difficulty sustaining attention
and focus, especially when in the presence of other stimuli. At Manchester
Pediatric Associates, we have been helping children with attention challenges
since 2011. Our pediatric team understands the challenges that your child
faces each and every day, which is why we are dedicated to helping them
find a solution.
Some common symptoms of ADD/ADHD include:
- Difficult time focusing on one task at a time
- Frequent careless mistakes
- Difficulty following instructions
- Organizing tasks are overly challenging
What's the Difference Between ADD & ADHD?
The "H" in ADHD stands for hyperactive, which has created a misconception
that people who have ADHD are loud and impulsive. It is important to understand
that ADHD is actually an umbrella term which covers a variety of attention
disorders, including ADD. ADHD is split into three main types: primarily
inattentive, primarily hyperactive-impulsive, and combined. Each three
of the types have different social styles that range from withdrawn to
excitable. Understanding which type your child has is the first step in
finding the right help.
Helping Your Child Find Academic Success
Unfortunately, children with ADHD are labeled as "bad students"
when they are unable to complete tasks or stay focused during class time.
While schools have become more aware of each child's individual differences,
many students go undiagnosed and do not receive the more strategic educational
style they need to acheive success. At Manchester Pediatric Associates,
our team of pediatricians is dedicated providing quality ADHD care that
places your child's needs first. We can help understand what kinds
of strategies and educational methods will help your child absorb knowledge
