Understanding ADHD Symptoms & Treatments

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder or ADHD is a development disorder that begins in early childhood. In Australia, the stigma of ADHD is the naughty school child, however, this is often far from the truth and does not accurately reflect the many different ways that ADHD can manifest in different personality types.

At CFHP, our ADHD psychologists and counsellors in Brisbane understand the different ways that attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder can manifest and the different ways it can affect the individual. Our goal is to pinpoint the underlying symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity to provide tailored treatment plans.

Untreated ADHD in children and adults can cause poor attention, poor time management, impulsivity, learning difficulties, and problems within familial, peer, and romantic relationships.
