What to Do If You Suspect Your Child Has ADHD

Andrew R. Gilbert, M.D.
Medical Director Hallowell Center

Read entire article at ExpertBeacon:

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and/or hyperactivity. ADHD is one of the most common childhood disorders and frequently continues into adolescence and adulthood. Although so many individuals with ADHD are bright, creative, and dynamic and have tremendous gifts, ADHD can greatly interfere with educational, occupational, economic and social functioning. Fortunately, there are many effective approaches to managing, facing and embracing ADHD and helping individuals achieve greater balance in their lives. If you suspect that your child has ADHD there are several simple and straightforward steps to take to get things started.

Do

·         Get informed
·         Find a provider with whom you and your child connect
·         Consider all treatment options
·         Find the right treatment for your child
·         Be optimistic

Don’t

·         Panic
·         Feel stuck with the first provider you meet
·         Immediately rule out treatment options
·         Believe that one size fits all
·         Give up

ADHD and Entrepreneurs

“You are very lucky,” I tell entrepreneurs. “You are blessed with an extraordinarily powerful mind. You have the equivalent of a Ferrari engine for a brain. That’s why you are a major winner in the making, a potential champion. But you must address one major problem. You have the brakes of a bicycle; you have difficulty controlling the power of your brain. Sometimes it runs away with you, so you may crash into walls or fail to slow down or stop when you should. This can cost you the race.” –  Dr. Hallowell
