Ohio State provides testing and treatment for ADHD.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects about 3-5 percent of American children.

Symptoms generally last 6 months or more and cause problems at home, school or social situations. They include:

  • Inattention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsivity

Causes of ADHD are often not known. Inherited or environmental factors may play a role in this condition.

Specialists at OSU Harding Behavioral Health can provide a complete evaluation to determine if your child has ADHD. Treatment may include medication, therapy and even diet or lifestyle changes. Structure at home and at school is important. Parents are encouraged to participate in learning ways in which they can support their child’s behavior.

Child and adolescent outpatient programs at OSU Harding Hospital can provide diagnostic and treatment support related to ADHD.
