Attention deficit disorder, with or without hyperactivity, (ADHD) goes beyond the simple lack of concentration or agitated behaviour observed in children and adults. It is explained by genuine neurochemical and neuroanatomical abnormalities, often hereditary, which can be detected and assessed to learn how best to manage it.
ADHD in young people
ADHD affects between 5% and 9% of children and adolescents in Quebec, and the phenomenon is constantly on the rise. ADHD causes difficulties in completing tasks such as homework, sitting for long periods, remembering instructions and responsibilities.
ADHD can also lead to difficulty regulating emotions and knowing how to behave in general. Young people living with ADHD face more disciplinary measures and are almost three times more likely to drop out of school than others.
Common symptoms and behaviors of children and adolescents with ADHD
- Inattention, trouble with listening and concentrating
- Hyperactivity and impulsivity
- Being forgetful and disorganized, misplacing objects
- Difficulty with sustained effort
- Relationship challenges, blurting answers before hearing the whole question
- Anxiety, low self-esteem
ADHD in adults
In more than half of all cases, ADHD is a condition that will persist into adulthood. American studies estimate that up to 70% of people with ADHD are at risk of being treated for depression, and are two to three times more affected by sleep disorders.
ADHD may also explain dependence on certain addictive substances, risky sexual behavior, difficulty in completing projects, managing multiple tasks, and behaving appropriately socially and professionally.
Common symptoms and behaviors of adults with ADHD
- Impatience, irritation, doesn’t stand still in a composed way
- Physical and internal agitation, external distraction
- Difficulty organizing (agenda, tasks), unfinished projects, procrastination, frequent forgetfulness
- Inattentive and paradoxically highly focused on specific subjects
- Difficulty resolving conflicts, lack of tact, raw emotions, anger, impulsiveness
- 25 to 40% of adults with ADHD have an anxiety or mood disorder
Only 2% of people with ADHD are diagnosed and receive the help they need. Whatever your age, the doctors at LeBlanc + Savaria clinics are committed to supporting you and giving you the tools to better manage this condition and reduce its daily repercussions.
No, our doctors are general practitioners. However, some of them specialize in treating patients with ADD.
The ADHD assessment process is a way of confirming your condition with a qualified professional and targeting treatment goals to help you live better with ADHD and reach your full potential.
The assessment consists of two meetings, more thorough and comprehensive than those carried out by any other professional. The first meeting aims to detect ADHD through a physical examination and questionnaires that take into account history, medical history, lifestyle habits (sleep, exercise, consumption) and general health. The second meeting is the time to discuss the results and any relevant treatments being considered.
As soon as the children started school.
