There are so many misconceptions about ADD and ADHD says psychologist Edmonton. That while it can be very difficult to live with the symptoms. It is even harder living with people who make assumptions based on those symptoms.

Those who do not know much about ADD or ADHD. Tend to think that it is not a real disorder. And that people who have symptoms are lazy, unfocused or lack discipline. Nothing is farther from the case however.

As people who are suffering with the symptoms of ADD and ADHD. Typically have to try harder than their peers. Just to get the same amount accomplished.

 

Minimizing The Symptoms of ADHD

Another misconception that many people have about this narrow development disorder. Is that it is only affecting children. With 6% of children between the ages of 4 to 16 year old getting a diagnosis.

However, because the symptoms manifest differently in girls than they do in boys. Many female children are overlooked by their symptoms. Because their problems are internal and less disruptive, they tend to be ignored. Girls frequently display inattentiveness or daydreaming. In addition to low self-esteem, there is a propensity for boys to have behavior issues.

The ratio of boys to girls being diagnosed with ADD and ADHD is 3 to 1. So while there are 6% of children between the ages of four and sixteen who have been diagnosed. Psychologist Edmonton says that this is a low average. Based on the number of girls who do not get diagnosed at all.

However, while 6% of children have been diagnosed, and experts believe that is a low number. Only 4% of adults have been reported to be diagnosed. This means, a large percentage of adults have ADD and ADHD and do not even know it.

While many people believe that symptoms of ADD and ADHD go away as a child grows older, 70% of children experience them. These problems continue into adulthood. However, there are a lot of incorrect ideas about ADD and ADHD. And, in particular, because most people think that adults cannot have or experience it.

Even more important to note, psychologist Edmonton says having ADD and ADHD symptoms into adulthood tends to exacerbate those symptoms. Because of the stress associated with adulthood.

The stress of relationships such as marriages, holding down a career, and paying bills such as mortgages and car payments. Can cause the symptoms to become more amplified.

And can get worse due to the stress. And that can cause problems in peoples relationships. Cause problems at work, and this is why adults with ADD and ADHD have a higher incidence of substance abuse and addiction problems.

However, once adults realize that they can get diagnosed. They will be able to get treatment that can help them manage their symptoms. So that they can excel in their life. Both in their relationships, work, and hobbies.

Despite the fact that more and more people are getting diagnosed with ADD or ADHD says psychologist Edmonton. There is still a lot of misconceptions about this narrow development disorder. Including the fact that it is the most prevail and narrow development disorder to be diagnosed.

While many people make the assumption that people who have ADD and ADHD are lazy or do not try hard enough because their symptoms can cause them to be inattentive, daydream, act impulsively or be hyperactive.

Instead, these symptoms might make it more difficult for individuals to achieve in school, at work, and in relationships. However, once the correct diagnosis is made. People can try different treatment options if they so desire. To assist persons cope with their problems. Many of the world’s most famous and accomplished people have ADD and ADHD diagnoses.

Athlete Terry Bradshaw, investor and philanthropist Richard Branson, and the most decorated Olympian Michael Phelps. All have received this diagnosis. But excel in their chosen careers once their symptoms are managed.

In fact, it is well-known that people who have ADD or ADHD are extremely creative, and once there symptoms of inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness are gone. Can excel in creative fields. Because of this gift.

Many people, on the other hand, avoid receiving a proper diagnosis. Since they have heard that the only treatments are scheduled medicines like Ritalin. They do not want to have to take a narcotic every day to function. However, psychologist Edmonton claims that there is only one type of ADD that responds to medication out of the seven types that exist

Instead, by making an appointment with psychologist Edmonton. People can get a Q E E G. Which is a quantitative electroencephalogram.

Which is a brain map that can show doctors exactly what is going on in a person’s brain. There able to see what areas of the brain are affected and to what level.

Then, by using a technology called neuro-feedback. These doctors attach sensors on the scalp, to measure brain waves. And then give feedback to the brain in order to tell it where it is overreacting and where it is under reacting as well.

Over time, the brain can use this narrow feedback to start changing and healing itself. Minimizing symptoms of ADD and ADHD. Not only that, but it is safe, natural and drug-free.

And not only can it treat the symptoms of ADD and ADHD. But can also treat symptoms of anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. As well as help heal damage caused by concussions, or help heal migraines.
