ADD/ADHD Q & A

What is the difference between ADD and ADHD?

Attention-deficit disorder (ADD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are behavioral and learning disorders that commonly affect children, although adults can struggle with them, too. Both conditions involve:

  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Constant daydreaming
  • Disorganization and regularly losing everyday items (like keys)

 

It’s also common to be easily distracted when you have ADD or ADHD. You may find that you start multiple tasks, but you finish few of them. 

ADD is a type of ADHD. What makes ADHD different is that you or your child may also be hyperactive. In addition to the above symptoms, you or your child may regularly squirm, fidget, and have a hard time holding still. It’s also common to blurt out answers and talk a lot, which can become disruptive to others. 

 

How are ADD and ADHD diagnosed?

When you visit the office of YZ Healthcare; Javaria Jabeen D.O., you can expect personalized care. Your provider conducts thorough ADD and ADHD diagnostic evaluations, which may include:

  • Review of personal and family medical history
  • Evaluation of current symptoms 
  • Filling out a behavioral checklist
  • Hearing and vision screening

 

If your child has behavioral or learning reports from their teachers at school, it’s helpful to bring them to your appointment at YZ Healthcare; Javaria Jabeen D.O. These evaluations, among others, are important to confirm either ADD or ADHD and to rule out other medical conditions. 

 

What is the treatment for ADD and ADHD?

Treating ADD and ADHD depends on the severity of your symptoms and how they’re affecting your life or your child’s. Your provider at YZ Healthcare; Javaria Jabeen D.O. may recommend:

  • Psychotherapy (talk therapy)
  • Behavioral management therapy
  • A stimulant or non-stimulant medication

 

Both ADD and ADHD are entirely manageable. The team at the office of YZ Healthcare; Javaria Jabeen D.O. follows up with you regularly to ensure you’re progressing and to make any necessary changes to your ADD or ADHD treatment plan.
