Therapy for ADHD
We all know kids who can’t sit still, who never seem to listen, who blurt out inappropriate comments, or don’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them.
We all have seen those adults who struggle with impulse buying, disorganized work areas, and frustrating their significant other in their relationship.
While it’s normal for children and adults to have a level of impulsivity, it might be ADHD if it is chronic, causes social issues with friends and peers, and is not regulated no matter how hard you try as a spouse or a parent.
If you believe your spouse has ADHD, a good book would be “Is it You, Me, or Adult ADD?”
Adults and Children with ADHD may:
- Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
- Appear not to be listening when spoken to
- Constantly fidget and squirm
- Talk excessively
- Act without thinking
- Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
- Have a quick temper or “short fuse”
Whether the symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. These frustrations can later lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family.
