Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) is the name given to a common but complex biological disorder characterised by excessive inattentiveness, impulsiveness or hyperactivity that significantly impairs a child’s functioning in a number of environments.  This course will describe the behaviours associated with AD/HD, diagnostic criteria, and Etiology including educational and family factors.  

The management programme that appears to have the best chance of success uses a combination of therapeutic approaches.  The role of medication will be discussed in detail.  Other approaches recommend the education of parents and improved communication between the parents, the treating doctor and the school.
