There are about half of the children with ADHD that will undergo or experience the symptoms as they grow according to some research. With this, it is strongly recommended to consult a physician or medical specialist to diagnose the child if ADHD symptoms are seen or observed.

However, you must be aware that physician will give different medications and dosages depending on the child and adults needs. The therapies needed for both age levels also matter.

There are many researches and studies that show that the treatments, medications, and therapies given to manage ADHD symptoms from childhood to adulthood should be based on the symptoms they manifest and the doctor’s prescription. The family is strongly to advise to give their full support on the ADHD patient especially during their childhood years.
