Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Related Content

If your child is exhibiting symptoms such as talking incessantly, fidgeting, poor concentration and difficulty sitting still, it may be attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, there has been an alarming trend of overdiagnosing this condition in children. You should seek the guidance of a pediatrician, child psychiatrist or a qualified mental health professional to make a full and complete diagnosis.

Jefferson Hospital's Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior in Philadelphia is staffed with highly trained and experienced mental health professionals who will work hard to thoroughly assess and correctly diagnose your child's condition.

Our staff of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Services provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, parent counseling and family therapy services.

Our specialists will work in conjunction with your pediatrician to ensure that your child's treatment is coordinated and that everyone is aware of the care, any medications that may be prescribed and how those medications are affecting your child's behavior.
