A Parent’s Question: “How do you know if your child has ADHD, or if they’re struggling due to an environmental situation, or when they’ll need professional help?” If you have ADHD, you have it in all places – not just in one or two situations. If the ADHD type behaviors are occurring only in certain situations, there is a problem with that particular setting, but it is NOT ADHD. If your child has the behaviors all of the time, you may want to find out more about ADHD. There are a lot of free checklists online that you can tap into. If the checklists confirm, then you will want to seek a diagnosis by a professional. And, know that there are a lot of alternatives to dealing with ADHD with medication.
