Symptoms of ADD/ADHD
Symptoms of ADD/ADHD in children and adolescents include but are not limited to fidgeting; not remaining seated when expected to do so; running or climbing excessively when such behavior is considered inappropriate; difficulty engaging in quiet activities; being in a constant state of motion; being excessively talkative; blurting answers prematurely; experiencing difficulty waiting one’s turn; and making frequent interruptions or intrusions on others.
At Living Rationally, Inc. we test and treat ages 13 years old and above. We use the Clinical Assessment of Attention Deficit-Child (CAt-C) to diagnose adolescents and the Clinical Assessment of Attention Deficit-Adult (CAt-A) to diagnose adults.
Treatment for ADD/ADHD can be with one of the following or a combination of all of these if necessary.
- Behavior Modification
Dr. Harry Steinmeyer is knowledgeable and well versed in these treatment modalities. He works with Dr. Alicia Baldwin if medication is needed.
Studies have shown that between 30-80% of children with ADHD continue to have full or residual symptoms of the disorder into adulthood. As with behavioral problems experienced by children and adolescents with ADHD, adults with ADD/ADHD have been shown to have more difficulty completing tasks, making careless mistakes and getting along with coworkers and supervisors than their peers without ADD/ADHD. Thus, they are more likely to quit or be laid off from jobs than their non-ADD/ADHD peers.
