Adult clients are evaluated for both adult and childhood symptoms of ADHD -lack of focus and hyperactivity/impulsivity. Children and adolescents are also evaluated for lack of focus and hyperactivity/impulsivity, and evaluated for early childhood symptoms up to the present time. We coordinate with adult and child therapists and also physicians in treating ADHD with medication and appropriate coping strategies for ADHD. ADHD and anxiety are frequently experienced together.
Symptoms of anxiety related to ADHD, such as test anxiety, social anxiety, and panic attacks are also evaluated. Symptoms of ADHD, left untreated, often create other symptoms, such as low self esteem, social phobia, depression, academic and occupational difficulties. If you are suffering with these symptoms, please give us a call at Behavioral Health Solutions, Tallahassee, and request a mental health evaluation, 850-552-0691.
