What is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder is a comprehensive disorder for which there is no definitive test. The diagnosis is made through observation of behaviors among children and adults including hyperactivity, difficulty in holding attention as well as impulsive actions. There are three types of ADHD. Diagnosis is determined by the different signs and symptoms a person is exhibiting.

1.     ADHD-Predominately inattentive and often referred to as Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD. This individual is easily distracted, has difficulty remaining focused and following direction, and has difficulty getting organized.

2.      ADHD-Predominately hyperactive manifests with excessive talking, fidgeting; the individual has difficulty remaining on task, exhibits impulsive and or destructive behaviors, hyperactivity and chronic or exaggerated impatience

3.      ADHD-Combined type is characterized by symptoms that are a combination of the previous two types. This is the most common type.

Understanding the Brain-The systems that govern the brain a complex.

The cells of the brain must communicate constantly, which is accomplished by transmitting electoral signals along the neurons that connect one part of the brain to another. The electrical signals are expressed as brain waves. A healthy, balanced, properly regulated nervous system will produce appropriate brain waves at the appropriate levels at the appropriate times for any given situation. Hormones are involved in brain function.

The four distinct brain wave frequencies

Beta Waves – are emitted when we are alert, or we feel agitated, tense, afraid.
Alpha Waves – are emitted when we are in a state of physical and mental. relaxation.
Theta Waves – are emitted during a state of deep relaxation.
Delta Waves – are emitted when there is deep restorative sleep.
Should cellular brain communication malfunction the individual may exhibit a neurological disregulation, with symptoms of inattention and or hyperactivity, to name just a few. This malfunction in communication may also result in anxiety disorders.
