ADHD

  • ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that primarily affects children and may persist into adolescence and adulthood. It is characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity that are more severe and frequent than those typically observed in individuals of the same age.
  • There are three main types of ADHD: primarily inattentive, primarily hyperactive-impulsive, and combined type. Each type presents with specific symptom patterns.
  • Individuals with ADHD often struggle to sustain attention on tasks, make careless mistakes, have difficulty organizing tasks, and frequently lose items necessary for activities.
  • Hyperactive symptoms include excessive fidgeting, restlessness, and difficulty remaining seated when expected. In children, this may manifest as running or climbing in inappropriate situations.
  • People with ADHD may act without thinking about the consequences, interrupt conversations, and have trouble waiting their turn.

  • Diagnosing ADHD involves a comprehensive evaluation by a qualified mental health professional, such as a clinical psychologist like Dr. Shubhi Agarwal. This evaluation includes gathering information from parents, teachers, and the individual, as well as ruling out other possible causes for the symptoms.
  • ADHD is believed to have a neurobiological basis, involving differences in the structure and functioning of certain brain areas, especially those related to executive functions and attention regulation.
  • ADHD can significantly impact an individual’s academic, occupational, and social functioning. Difficulties in staying organized, completing tasks, and maintaining relationships are common challenges.
  • Individuals with ADHD may also experience co-existing conditions such as learning disabilities, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and conduct problems.

 

Each person with ADHD is unique, so Dr. Shubhi Agarwal would need to personalize her approach to meet the specific needs and circumstances of each individual she works with. ADHD is a complex condition, and comprehensive support can significantly improve an individual’s quality of life.
