The disorder that I am choosing to discuss is childhood disorders. The two main disorders that the text writes about is ADHD and Autism. ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) is a disorder marked by inattention, impulsiveness, a low tolerance for frustration, and generally a great deal of inappropriate activity. ADHD interferes with a child's everyday functioning. There are two
types of treatment for ADHD, pharmacological and Alternative ADHD treatments for ADHD. ADHD is usually treated with the aid of stimulant drugs like Ritalin, Concerta, and with non-stimulant Straterra as well as amphetamines, such as Dexedrine and Adderall. ADHD can also be treated by psychotherapy. Autism is a sever developmental disability that impairs children's ability to communicate and relate to others. There is no cure for Autism, however a combination of treatment methods is more effective for an individual with Autism. Occupational therapy and physical therapy are sometimes used to treat Autism.
