ADHD with Hyperactivity or Impulsivity
Most of the people think that ADHD with Hyperactivity/Impulsivity is the term related to deficit disorder. The person with hyperactivity is restless, hyper, impulsive, disorganized, and very distractible and has numerous issues. These are the children that are bouncing off the walls from an early age, and the children that will have trouble with school and play from the start. The good part of this is they will most likely be diagnosed fairly early on because of the visibility of their symptoms. If it is your c hild that is diagnosed with ADHD, you will want to learn all you can in order to help them best cope with life in general.
Other features of ADHD that come directly from hyperactivity are excessive talking, in constant motion and has much trouble listening. They also need constant stimulation so that they can stay excited themselves. These individuals also tend to interrupt people, not knowing how to wait their turn. This behavior in particular can be very frustrating to others. When it is your child that does these things and you have had him/her evaluated and diagnosed with ADHD, then you need to get all the information available in order to best work with your child.
Besides hyperactivity, many of the symptoms of inattention are also present. Individuals with ADHD make careless mistakes, tend to lose things and are forgetful about routine and everyday things. Try to focus the person’s attention on one task at a time and follow through with them until that task is completed successfully.
ADHD with hyperactivity usually responds very well to stimulants. Sufferers’ brains instantly calm down with enough dopamine. They do not feel the need to have excess activity surrounding them. If you suspect that someone in your life has ADHD, refer them to a mental health professional as soon as you can. The longer a sufferer goes without help or guidance, the more damage it will do to that person’s self-esteem and life direction. People with these disabilities need your help and guidance and do not need to be yelled at for something they have done or not done that is not their fault.
Individuals with this type of attention deficit disorder tend to be very impulsive, which in later years can turn to rebellious behavior. These are the teenagers that will look for trouble, will often start taking drugs early and will seek out any kind of stimulation they can. Diagnosis early is essential, but that does not always mean these individuals won’t still seek out trouble. The disregulation of activation levels will always be something the sufferer wants to fix, and unfortunately this can very easily lead to drug abuse and addiction.
Exercise is something that is helpful to all ADDers, but it is essential for individuals with ADHD. Exercise stimulates the whole brain, and it can turn down the volume on all the noise that people with ADHD have. Sufferers with ADHD should be exercising almost every day, the more the better.
Other interventions that will be helpful for people with ADHD are dietary interventions and counseling if necessary. Individuals with ADHD will do best on a mostly protein diet, supplementing with carbohydrates. Protein activates the part of the brain in ADDers that is chronically under activated. Regarding counseling, this depends on the person. If at the early stage the disorder was diagnosed, no problems will appear in future. But for most of the people, ADD may cause at least some emotional disorder at some extent. Counseling therapy will definitely give successful life.
