Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)


Specialized Treatment & Care of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood and can continue into the teen years and adulthood, impacting daily activities, relationships, and academic performance.

At Bangkok Mental Health Hospital, we understand the challenges presented by ADHD and offer specialized care to support individuals and families navigating this condition.

Symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD manifests itself through a variety of symptoms, which can be predominantly inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive, or a combination of both. Symptoms vary widely from mild to severe but commonly include:

Children having difficulty paying attention and concentrating. They’re often easily distracted and have trouble staying on task.


This ADHD symptom involves having excessive energy, causing restlessness, talkativeness, and difficulty staying still. Children may be fidgety and easily bored. They might have trouble sitting still or staying quiet when needed, and tend to rush through things and act carelessly.


Impulsiveness means acting without forethought, resulting in hurried decisions and interruptions. It’s usually related to having difficulty with self-control. In children, impulsiveness can lead them to act quickly and rashly before thinking about consequences. They may often interrupt, have difficulty waiting, and may do things without asking for permission.

Adult Challenges

Adult ADHD symptoms, such as disorganization, poor time management, and difficulty handling stress, can also present challenges. They may have problems prioritizing and focusing on tasks and difficulty multitasking. This often leads to low frustration tolerance, frequent mood swings, and difficulty coping with stress.


Early intervention is key. If you or someone you know shows signs of ADHD, consulting a healthcare professional as soon as possible can provide clarity and offer options for effective management strategies.

Behavioral Indicators

Diagnosing ADHD involves a comprehensive evaluation to rule out other conditions and determine the type of ADHD. There is no single test to diagnose ADHD, as certain types of learning disabilities can have similar symptoms. Medical exams, such as hearing and vision tests, should be performed to rule out other problems associated with symptoms like ADHD.

A diagnosis is based on the presence of persistent symptoms that have occurred over a period of time and are noticeable over the past six months. Our Bangkok Mental Health Hospital team uses a multidisciplinary approach to ensure an accurate diagnosis. The three main types of ADHD are:

For Children

Although there’s no cure, families can be empowered with strategies to support children with ADHD. Symptoms can be managed with appropriate educational support, advice, and support for parents and affected children, alongside medication, if necessary.

For Adults

Medication is one of the treatment options offered for adults with ADHD. Psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) may also help manage thoughts and behavior. They also receive advice on diet, exercise, and routine to support overall well-being.
