Hello! My name is Patti Weiss, and I am a licensed neuropsychologist in San Francisco, California. This is the first of a series of blogs dealing with subjects that frequently come up in my practice. For this first blog, let’s look at attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder. This is also known as ADD or ADHD.
What are the signs of ADD and ADHD?
For mild and moderate attention deficit disorder, the symptoms are problems with concentration, attention and memory. There are also problems with sitting still for long periods of time (in class for children and teens, and in office meetings for adults). There are also difficulties with focusing on different subjects at school or at work.
