Help with ADHD in Sparta, NJ

Skylands Pediatrics, located in Sparta, New Jersey, is directed by Dr. Carol Calabrese, Dr. Inna Meskin, and Dr. Alexis Capozzoli, who see their young patients daily. Our office provides several services, including help with ADHD. Today, our experienced and board-certified doctors want to expand on this diagnosis that plagues many young people.

Defining ADHD

Now that the symptoms of ADHD have been uncovered, parents and teachers are trained to identify possible ADHD in children as a common disorder beginning in childhood and continuing throughout your child's life; ADHD does not go away but continues throughout adulthood.

However, our doctors at Skylands Pediatric in Sparta, NJ, can help manage the signs and symptoms of ADHD with the right therapy and medication interventions. The defining factors can be mild to severe; you may see the following in your child.

  • Inability to focus or pay attention
  • Impulsive behaviors, acting without thinking
  • Overly active and always in motion
  • Daydreaming
  • Forgetful, lose possessions
  • Fidgets
  • Talks too much
  • Accident-prone due to acting without thinking
  • Careless
  • Tempted toward bad decision-making
  • Cannot wait their turn
  • Relationship issues

It takes the expertise of our experienced doctors to determine what type of ADHD your child may have, such as inattentiveness, hyperactive-impulsive, or a combination of both of these types.

Causes of ADHD

Medical researchers have yet to determine the best ways to manage this condition or reduce the risks of a child developing ADHD, as they are unknown.

Researchers delving into ADHD point to the fact that this condition could be hereditary. Other studies indicate that brain injury and exposure to environmental risks like chemicals, lead alcohol, and tobacco during pregnancy is a possibility, in addition to low birth weight. All other assumptions are myths like overeating sugar.

Steps Our Doctors Take to Diagnose ADHD

  • Medical exam
  • Hearing and vision tests
  • Rating and calculating ADHD symptoms
  • Review of family history

ADHD Treatment Options

Treatment interventions can begin once our doctors gather all the necessary information. However, treatment may include,

  • Behavior therapy
  • Medication
  • Specific training for parents
  • Providing a balanced diet
  • Ensuring positive physical activity
  • Limiting time with electronic devices and television time
  • Ensuring a good night's sleep every night

Our primary goal is to manage your child's ADHD symptoms so they can live life to the fullest. Dr. Calabrese, Dr. Meskin, and Dr. Capozzoli are here to serve your child's healthcare needs at Skylands Pediatric in Sparta, NJ.
