Diagnosing and managing ADHD is a team effort that includes not only your pediatrician, but also the teachers and the parents. Diagnosis and treatment can also include the child’s daycare provider and other caregivers like grandparents, therapists, and coaches. Often the symptoms of ADHD can be traced through generations. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports diagnosis and treatment in children as young as 4 years old. ADHD not only affects the child in the school setting and with peers, but it also strains family dynamics. In addition, ADHD may be accompanied by other diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, and learning disorders. There is much that can be done to help a child with ADHD succeed in school and at home. Parents can choose medication or therapy, or both with the right information. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics Clinical Practice Guideline for the Evaluation, Diagnosis and Treatment of ADHD released in October 2019. If your child is struggling at school and home, consider making an appointment so we can better understand the challenges your child is facing, and help your child overcome these challenges.
