Is ADHD Affecting Your Child's Potential?

Understanding ADHD for better support and brighter futures.

Does your child struggle with focus, impulse control, or constant fidgeting? These could be signs of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). At ChildrenPlus Noida, we provide specialized assessments to clarify ADHD in children and teens. Our expert therapists offer support and strategies to help young people manage challenges and thrive.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD; previously known as Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD) is the term used to describe an ongoing pattern of behaviour that begins early in Children and Adolescents. ADHD is the most common brain-based condition in childhood – affecting close to 10% of school-aged children. School can be particularly challenging for young people with ADHD and can significantly impact Child and Adolescent Mental Health. Not only because of the learning challenges but also the need to follow rules and social challenges. We discuss ADHD symptoms, the process of ADHD diagnosis and its treatment.

Recognizing ADHD in Children and Teens

ADHD presents in different ways. Look for these signs:

  • Inattention: Makes careless mistakes, struggles to sustain focus, easily distracted, doesn’t follow through.
  • Hyperactivity: Always “on the go,” talks excessively, fidgets, or has difficulty staying seated.
  • Impulsivity: Interrupts others, blurts out answers, takes risks without thinking.

The Impact of Untreated ADHD

ADHD can be incredibly frustrating for children, teens, and their families, impacting:

  • School Success: Difficulty paying attention, completing work, and staying organized can lead to academic struggles.
  • Social Challenges: Impulsivity and restlessness may create friction with peers and cause social difficulties.
  • Family Life: Disorganization, frequent disruptions, and defiance can add stress to the family dynamic.
  • Self-Esteem: Repeated negative feedback and a sense of “not being good enough” can harm self-confidence.

ADHD is a developmental condition (that often begins early in life) and in most cases persists (to some degree) throughout life. ADHD symptoms can present as a number of different behaviours described as hyperactive, impulsive, and/or inattentive. Some Children and Adolescents may have greater difficulties in the area of hyperactivity and others may have greater difficulty sustaining attention. Furthermore, some Children and Adolescents may have a combination of both behaviours and these individuals will require specialized ADHD diagnosis and support.

Assessment and Diagnosis of ADHD Symptoms in Children and Adolescents
The process of ADHD diagnosis should involve the input of multiple sources of information including parents and teachers and include a thorough assessment of ADHD symptoms listed above. Specialist Child Psychologists at childrenplus Noida, can gather information and undertake a series of psychological assessment tasks to clarify the nature of the difficulties. As a result, they will be able to see if there are any other factors that may be leading to these problems. Child Psychologists can also be part of the management plan for the ADHD symptoms.
