What is ADHD?
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) refers to a range of problem behaviours associated with poor attention span.

These may include impulsiveness, restlessness and hyperactivity, as well as inattentiveness, and often prevent children from learning and socialising well. ADHD is sometimes referred to as hyperkinetic disorder.

What are the symptoms of ADHD?
Attention difficulties
A child must have exhibited at least six of the following symptoms for at least six months to an extent that is unusual for their age and level of intelligence.
  • Fails to pay close attention to detail or makes careless errors during work or play.
  • Fails to finish tasks or sustain attention in play activities.
  • Seems not to listen to what is said to him or her.
  • Fails to follow through instructions or to finish homework or chores (not because of confrontational behaviour or failure to understand instructions).
  • Disorganised about tasks and activities.
  • Avoids tasks like homework that require sustained mental effort.
  • Loses things necessary for certain tasks or activities, such as pencils, books or toys.
  • Easily distracted.
  • Forgetful in the course of daily activities.

Hyperactivity
A child must have exhibited at least three of the following symptoms for at least six months to an extent that is unusual for their age and level of intelligence.
  • Runs around or excessively climbs over things. (In adolescents or adults only feelings of restlessness may occur.)
  • Unduly noisy in playing, or has difficulty in engaging in quiet leisure activities.
  • Leaves seat in classroom or in other situations where remaining seated is expected.
  • Fidgets with hands or feet or squirms on seat.

Impulsivity
At least one of the following symptoms must have persisted at least for six months to an extent that is unusual for their age and level of intelligence.
  • Blurts out answers before the questions have been completed.
  • Fails to wait in lines or await turns in games or group situations.
  • Interrupts or intrudes on others, e.g. butts into others conversations or games.
  • Talks excessively without appropriate response to social restraint.

What causes ADHD?

Biological factors
  • The child's temperament, as this contributes to their attitude and personality.
  • Studies of twins suggest a genetic link to ADHD. In 80-90 per cent of identical twins where one has ADHD so does the other. Recent research also suggests there is a greater chance of inheriting the condition from male relatives such as grandfathers.
  • Brain injuries due to birth trauma or pre-birth problems. The brain structures believed to be linked to the development of ADHD are vulnerable to hypoxic damage during birth. The damage is caused by inadequate oxygen reaching parts of the brain while blood flow is reduced.

Environmental factors
  • Family stress.
  • Educational difficulties.

How is ADHD diagnosed?
There is no single diagnostic test for ADHD so different sorts of information needs to be gathered, such as the following:

History of symptoms
The precise nature of the difficulties, when they were first noticed, in what situations they occur, factors that exacerbate or relieve them.

Medical history
Risk factors that could predispose the child to ADHD include difficulties and risks in pregnancy and during birth, for example if the mother was in poor health, very young or drank alcohol or smoked or had an extended or complicated labour.

Accidents, operations and chronic medical conditions such as epilepsy, asthma and heart, liver and kidney disorders all need to be taken in to account. Also of possible relevance is any medication the child is taking, as well as any adverse reactions they have had to medication in the past.

Past psychiatric history
Enquiring about any mental health problems the child has had can help rule out depression or anxiety being behind the symptoms.

Educational history
This means the level of their ability and what specific difficulties they have, how they function within their peer group and get on with teachers, and any behaviour difficulties such as suspensions or exclusions. A more detailed evaluation of the child's learning by a psychologist may be necessary.

Evaluation of the child's temperament and personality
The child's temperament and personality, those of other family members and the nature of relationships within the family may need to be assessed. This will include discussion of the methods used by the parents to manage the child's behaviour and how successful they have been. Although this seems intrusive, the assessor will remain neutral and parents should not feel the disorder is 'their fault'.

Family history
The mental and physical health of the child's parents and other family members can be relevant, particularly regarding the incidence of ADHD or depression.

Social assessment
The family's social circumstances, such as housing, poverty, and social support may all have an impact on the child's behaviour.

What treatment is available for ADHD?
Treatment depends on a child's exact diagnosis. It should take into account any specific difficulties and those strengths that may aid their improvement.
  • It is not easy to live or cope with a child with ADHD. Both parents and teachers can follow general guidelines to manage a child's problematic behaviour but they may

Psychological treatments
In addition to the management techniques described, other forms of psychological treatment might include anxiety management, cognitive therapy, individual psychotherapy and social skills training.



Homeo treatment for ADHD
Homeopathy medicines works well in child and adult ADHD along with other therapies.
