Brain Balance Achievement Center of Norwalk Helps Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) refers to a disorder in which children struggle to pay attention, are extremely active, and act impulsively. This disorder can affect children behaviorally and academically as these students struggle with daily activities, such as sitting still, focusing on instruction, staying organized, and waiting their turn. In order for a child to be diagnosed with ADHD, symptoms need to have affected the child’s daily life in at least two settings (school and home) for a period of 6 months.
ADHD is the result of decreased right brain activity. The right hemisphere of the brain regulates social behavior, impulsivity, and attention. For children with ADHD, decreased right brain activity causes inappropriate social behaviors, impulsive actions, and lack of attention. The best child ADHD program addresses the child’s specific type of ADHD through a natural, whole-child approach.
There are 3 different types of ADHD: inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type, and combined type. With the inattentive type, children struggle to focus on tasks and activities while children who fall under the hyperactive-impulsive category struggle with the constant need to be active and with the tendency to act without thinking. Children who are classified as combined type struggle with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
