ABOUT TEEN ADHD

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects millions of teens, and often continues into adulthood. Teens with ADHD often act without thinking, are hyperactive, and have trouble focusing. These adolescents may also experience problems with social skills and self-esteem. ADHD can impair a child’s ability to function socially, academically, and at home.

If you are a parent of an adolescent with ADHD, you know how challenging your role can be. However, it may be comforting to know that ADHD is not uncommon. For these youth, simple frustrations and day-to-day irritations can be blown out of proportion and trigger impulsive aggressiveness. Some common examples of this behavior include verbal threats, foul language, yelling, throwing of objects, stomping of feet, and waving of arms.

Fortunately, with proper treatment, adolescents with ADHD can successfully live with and manage their symptoms. If your child is between the ages of 13-17, and you think he/she may have ADHD, please contact us by completing the questionnaire on the right or calling our office to learn more about this study.
