How ADHD Doctors Help Children With ADHD

How ADHD Doctors Help Children With ADHD

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), just over 10% of all children between the ages of 4 and 17 in the United States have been diagnosed with ADHD or ADD. This translates to nearly 6.1 million American children in 2016. If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, the best thing you can do is to seek the right treatment from ADHD doctors. Here’s how ADHD doctors help children with ADHD.

They Can Prescribe the Right Medication

ADHD doctors are well-equipped to prescribe and manage ADHD medication. Medication has been proven to help reduce symptoms of ADHD, such as hyperactivity and difficulty concentrating. ADHD doctors will thoroughly evaluate your child to ensure they prescribe the best medications since each child responds differently to specific ADHD medications.

They Can Help Manage Emotional and Behavioral Issues

ADHD doctors, psychiatrists, and psychologists can help children with ADHD in several ways. For starters, they can prescribe the right medication to treat your child or refer you to the best person for the job. However, medication isn’t a magic pill for ADHD, so it’s crucial to implement lifestyle changes to address emotional and behavioral problems.

A psychiatrist can help address mental health issues by counseling your child or providing therapy. A psychologist can also provide behavior modification therapy to help your child develop coping strategies. The type of ADHD doctor that’s right for your child depends on your child’s unique condition. For instance, if your child is dealing with speech problems, then they will benefit from seeing a speech-language pathologist.

They Take Care Of Your Child’s Overall Health

Children with ADHD generally face problems at school, at home, or in social settings. To effectively manage ADHD, it’s important for your child to receive comprehensive treatment. This explains why after an ADHD diagnosis, your child’s primary care doctor may recommend that you see other specialists, such as a mental health professional and a pediatrician. By working with a team of pros, you can be sure that your child’s overall health is taken care of, especially if you work with professionals that have extensive experience treating children with ADHD.

ADHD doctors make a huge difference by helping children with ADHD perform better at home and at school. Get in touch with us if you would like to speak to an ADHD specialist to discuss how we can provide your child with the right level of support you need.
