ADHD, or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, affects approximately 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults. It can impact daily life and make it difficult to focus, stay organized, and manage time. 

Seeking professional support is crucial for managing symptoms and improving quality of life. Our team of skilled nurse practitioners at AVI MIND, a leading provider of ADHD treatment in New York, is here to help. 

What Is ADHD?

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It involves persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. 

Symptoms can vary between individuals and often present differently in children and grown-ups. Kids might struggle with sitting still, following instructions, or completing tasks. Adults may need help with time management, organization, and maintaining relationships. 

This condition’s impact can be profound. It may affect academic performance, career success, personal connections, and more.

Diagnosis

Proper diagnosis is the first step toward effective treatment. ADHD is typically diagnosed through an in-depth evaluation that includes: 

  • Medical history
  • Behavioral assessments
  • Psychological testing (in some situations)

Our specialists take a thorough and personalized approach to diagnosing this condition. We ensure each patient receives an accurate assessment and an appropriate management plan.

ADHD Treatment Options

Treating ADHD often involves a combination of therapy, medication, and lifestyle adjustments.

Medication

Stimulant and non-stimulant drugs can help you manage symptoms. They improve focus, attention, and self-control. We will work with you to determine the best medication and dosage for your needs.

Therapy

Behavior therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) are practical approaches for treating ADHD. These therapies emphasize developing coping skills and improving behavior. Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) can also be helpful for children struggling with ADHD symptoms and other conditions like Oppositional Defiance Disorder.

Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle changes can also aid in ADHD management. This includes:

  • Establishing routines
  • Using organizational tools
  • Practicing mindfulness 

Our team at AVI MIND provides guidance and ongoing assistance to help patients implement these strategies.
