ADHD Evaluation:  €500

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can impact every area of a child's life, from friendships and family interaction to school, self-esteem and even personal safety. Although children with ADHD are often bright and talented, impulsivity, irritability and distractibility frequently hinder their progress and performance. In time, behaviors such as fidgeting in class, forgetting assignments and being emotionally volatile can define a child, eclipsing other aptitudes and abilities.
