Does your child have trouble paying attention?
Does he or she talk nonstop or have trouble staying still?
Does your child have a hard time controlling his or her behavior?
For some children, these may be symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
ADHD is a common mental disorder that begins in childhood and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. It makes it hard for a child to focus and pay attention. Some children may be hyperactive or have trouble being patient. For children withÂ ADHD, levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behaviors are greater than for other children in their age group. ADHD can make it hard for a child to do well in school or behave at home or in the community.
Auditory processing disorder (APD), also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), is a hearing problem that affects about 5% of school-aged children.
Kids with this condition can’t process what they hear in the same way other kids do because their ears and brain don’t fully coordinate. Something interferes with the way the brain recognizes and interprets sounds, especially speech.
With the rightÂ therapy, kids with APD can be successful in school and life. Early diagnosis is important, because when the condition isn’t caught and treatedÂ early, a childÂ can have speech and language delays or problems learning in school
Sensory processing disorder (SPD; also known as sensory integration dysfunction) is a condition alleged to exist when multisensory integration is not adequately processed in order to provide appropriate responses to the demands of the environment.
The senses provide information from various modalitiesâ€”,vision, audition, tactile, olfactory, taste, proprioception and vestibular systemâ€”that humans need to function. Sensory processing disorder is characterized by significant problems to organize sensation coming from the body and the environment and manifested by difficulties in the performance in one or more of the main areas of life: productivity, leisure and play or activities of daily living.
