Worried your child has ADHD?

Autism-ADD-ADHD

Need tools to manage symptoms as an adult with ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder affecting 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults, according to the American Psychiatric Association. While ADHD most often occurs in children, 2 out of 3 children with ADHD will continue to have symptoms into adulthood. Research shows that ADHD is the result of a deficiency in norepinephrine, a brain neurotransmitter.

Symptoms of ADHD can include:

  • trouble concentrating and paying attention
  • difficulty staying organized
  • impulsivity
  • hyperactivity or excessive restlessness
  • low self esteem
  • struggle with time management skills

With a 42% increase in the number of ADHD diagnoses in the last 15 years, there is a lot of debate about the validity of an ADHD diagnosis. At Charleston Counseling Center, we understand many parent’s hesitancy to label their kids with ADHD. We are here to help you and your child learn tools that will help them at school and at home, as well as manage behaviors that may be impacting relationships within your family.

Our team of experienced and licensed professionals are ready to help you move past your anxiety today. We accept many insurance plans and offer evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.  Contact us to make an appointment.
