ADHD is defined as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. ADHD is a behavioral disorder more common in boys than in girls. Also the studies have shown that it has something to do with a genetic that means that the “family history” is involved. ADHD and autism can not be cured totally but patients diagnosed with ADHD have a chance to successfully manage this disorder. The main ADHD symptoms are: listening problems, difficulty with paying attention on details, task and play activities, problems with organizations, avoidance of tasks requiring a mental effort, problem in staying seated, excessive running or climbing, problems with waiting for a turn or in line. Those patients are actually hyperactive and always “on the go”. On the other hand patients diagnosed with autism are not sociable and do not communicate well, they have a difficulty in starting a conversation. Their IQ is very low and is very limited in their activities and interests. While playing with toys they focus their attention on specific objects that twirl or spin for hours. There’re some good treatment that can help managed this disorders. In both cases it is recommended that along with a medicines patients diagnosed with autism need to get a behavioral treatment. In patients diagnosed with ADHD medical treatment may consists of stimulants, nonstimulants and antidepressants. But the better effects are gained if a medical treatment is used in a combination with a behavioral therapy which includes reorganizing the child’s home and school environment, creating a routine in everyday life, limiting choices, helping the child to discover a talent. In both cases patience and the family support is of the biggest importance.
