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
  • Forgetfulness

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 Each three of the types have different social styles that range from withdrawn to excitable.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 achieve 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 more easily.
