ADD and ADHD
ADD and ADHD are common neurodevelopmental disorders. Symptoms can include difficultly paying attention, impulsive behavior and/or hyperactivity. These disorders often begin in childhood and can persist into adulthood, resulting in low self-esteem, social challenges and difficulty at school or work.
Overview and SymptomsA diagnosis of ADD or ADHD requires a comprehensive evaluation that includes both physical and behavioral assessments. For adults, symptoms of the condition (such as inattention, hyperactivity or impulsivity) must be present in more than one setting and have been present since the age of 12.
There is no cure for ADD or ADHD, but treatments and therapies can help reduce symptoms and improve daily functioning. Our multidisciplinary team of cognitive neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and social workers work together to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and goals.
