ADD-and-ADHD

 

  • Do you, your teacher or doctor suspect a problem with ADD or ADHD?
  • Are you looking to have your child assessed for ADD or ADHD?
  • Is your child experiencing difficulty retaining information even though they spend a long time studying?
  • Are you wondering if you have ADHD?
 

 

ADHD is a mental disorder that is characterized by problems with attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behaviour.

ADHD is divided into three different types:

  • predominantly inattentive type
  • predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type
  • combination type

The type of ADHD is determined by the prevalence of symptoms. Symptoms of the disorder must impact everyday function significantly to be considered for a diagnosis.

ADHD presents itself in different ways. One with ADHD may find difficulty in:

  • Following instructions
  • Focusing and sustaining attention
  • Dividing attention efficiently
  • Selecting and focusing specific details
  • Recalling information
  • Organizing tasks in an efficient manner
  • Completing tasks on time

At Clinique PsySanté, we specialize in helping children, teens, and adults that have attentional issues. 

We offer:

  • Screening for individuals at risk for ADHD.
  • Full Psychometric Assessment packages to assess and diagnose ADHD
  • Treatment recommendations
  • Follow up supportive treatment for those with ADHD

Although ADD and ADHD is fundamentally a neurological medical condition there are some effects of this condition on academic learning, emotional development, social relationships, and difficult family dynamics. People who have ADHD  have a difficult time controlling their thoughts, regulating their emotions, and controlling their behaviour.

Our integrative approach means that our psychologists can help with the diagnosis and offer a wide range of effective solutions that support your medical treatment.  Along with you, we work with allied educational and health care professionals including the teachers, physicians, and psychologists.
