ADD/ADHD Q & A

What are ADD and ADHD?

Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are two common childhood conditions that affect your child’s behavior and development. Both ADD and ADHD make it difficult for your child to stay focused, which can interfere with their life at home, at school, and in social situations.

Dr. Schulman specializes in diagnosing and treating the symptoms of both ADD and ADHD in children of all ages. He creates individualized treatment plans that ensure your child enjoys a high quality of life.

What are the symptoms of ADD and ADHD?

While ADD and ADHD symptoms vary from child to child, common signs of both conditions may include:

  • Lack of focus
  • Being easily distracted
  • Short attention span
  • Frequent forgetfulness
  • Struggling to complete tasks
  • Difficulties following directions

ADHD also affects your child’s ability to stay still and can increase their risk of displaying disruptive behaviors publicly and privately.

How are ADD and ADHD diagnosed?

To determine if your child’s behaviors relate to ADD, ADHD, or another underlying condition, Dr. Schulman provides in-office screenings and assessments. He has extensive experience in diagnosing developmental delays in kids through all phases of childhood.
