Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a serious mental health disorder for children and adults alike. An individual diagnosed with this disorder may experience difficulty focusing for extended periods of time, noticeable hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. ADHD symptoms are often-times easier to diagnose in children. The symptoms become more easy to recognize by teachers and parents once they enter grade school, where they are faced with new challenges. A child who suffers from ADHD may get frustrated easily with mundane tasks that other children may find simple to accomplish.
Adults diagnosed with ADHD will also face some of the same frustrations with the symptoms of the disorder in day-to-day activity. The hyperactivity may decrease, but adults with ADHD still might find it especially difficult to stay on task at work. In some cases, symptoms of ADHD may overlap with those of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Keep in mind, OCD and ADHD are different mental health disorders and require further diagnosis. Though some symptoms may not be directly attributed to the disorder itself, some additional struggles with ADHD may include:
- Relationship complications
- Lack of motivation
- Rebellious attitude
- Confrontational behavior
- Anxiety spikes
- Drug/ alcohol dependency
Causes of this disorder could be due to premature birth or exposure to environmental toxins at a young age. ADHD can also be caused by genetic factors out of everyone’s control. For example, if there is someone in the family history with other mental disorders, this may increase the likelihood that you could pass them to your child
If you or your child suffers from ADHD, you have several therapy options to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. Traditional talk therapies and medications are often used, but Reboot offers another solution that is noninvasive and fast-acting.

These noninvasive tools help us understand your brain functioning better, and we then can create targeted therapies to change maladaptive behavior.
