Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder



Attention deficit-like syndrome may be different for, depending on various factors. Typically, there are three forms of its course:


  • syndrome that combines and symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder;
  • no signs of hyperactivity attention deficit disorder;
  • attention deficit disorder without hyperactivity.


As with other disorders of brain activity, the exact etiology of ADHD is not defined, and it is impossible to say for sure which of the risk factors will form the basis for the development of the syndrome. Nevertheless, scientists distinguish primary and secondary forms of the syndrome – a secondary form is present with concurrent mental illness and can cause injury and borne illnesses in any of the mother’s pregnancy trimesters.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, shortened to abbreviations ADHD is a behavioral disorder and syndrome develops as a result of dysfunction of the central nervous system. The main feature is the presence of ADHD difficulty in focusing on certain subjects or classes. A secondary, but also a pronounced indication of the presence of such dysfunction is the increase in the motor activity of the child – he is too impulsive, have problems with the simplest social interactions and learning. Like most behavioral disorders, the syndrome is more common in boys, but traditionally more difficult the flow and treatment of ADHD in girls is. At the moment, the official estimates of incidence in the world and the local level is not present, but the average in Ukraine, like most developing countries, the syndrome is diagnosed in 4-18% of children.


There are a number of risk factors that may lead to the development of disease:


  • any infectious diseases carried over the child in early childhood;
  • prematurity and prematurity;
  • fetal effects of alcohol, tobacco combustion products, and strong medications;
  • neonatal asphyxia;
  • problems of family nature – from bad material support to satiety material goods;
  • genetic predisposition, as evidenced by the tendency of the syndrome by genetic line.


Quite often a sign that triggers the development of the syndrome is the lack or total absence of some of the brain chemicals such as norepinephrine and dopamine. The sudden absence of these substances should already cause for rapid diagnosis and initiation of treatment.


Symptoms and Diagnosis


Diagnosing ADHD occurs in accordance with a special scale formed. Only it is complicated in the case when the child is suffering from a mental disorder and the symptoms of ADHD is attributed to this disorder.


The primary symptoms of attention of any of the types of deficiency include:


  • inattention and inability to focus on the details;
  • lack of care both during the imposed, and during self-selected activities;
  • lack of skills of organization and self-organization;
  • moderate avoiding those activities that are experiencing significant mental load and require high concentration of attention;
  • marked forgetfulness in training and daily life.

For children without hyperactivity, attention deficit but the opposite – slow, inhibited and a little emotional. If there is no special treatment of ADHD may lead to a drop in performance during training, conflict and violations of reading and writing skills.




With a large selection of methods for the treatment of syndrome are the most effective non-drug, which does not inhibit the nervous system and brain, and reduced in their natural mode operation. brain stimulation Center practiced a holistic approach to the treatment of behavioral disorders. The basis of treatment becomes micropolarization that restores the activity of certain parts of the brain, and concomitant therapy helps to solve the problem of external manifestations of the syndrome. As a concomitant to our center applied psychotherapy, osteopathy, neuropsychological correction. This complex treatment is an effective substitute for the use of nootropics and tranquilizers, are used for the treatment of syndrome before and leads to inhibition of the nervous system of the child. Micropolarization, as a treatment for attention deficit disorder, it allows virtually eliminate the underlying problems and mechanisms of the syndrome, and concomitant therapy removes its external manifestations.
