Attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that influences your behaviors. Usually starting in childhood, ADHD can last for the rest of your life even if its symptoms fluctuate. Dr. Leach can diagnose the condition with assessments and may rule out other possible causes of symptoms using diagnostic testing. 


While several different behaviors are associated with ADHD, some of them are common in children who don’t have the condition. In order to To receive a diagnosis during childhood or adulthood, you must meet the criteria of having at least five or six of the symptoms over a six-month period that interfere with your day-to-day functioning. 

Once you have a diagnosis, Dr. Leach plans and customizes your treatment to align with your lifestyle and personal needs. He encourages you to check in regularly so he can evaluate your progress and change your treatment plan if necessary. 

Which type of ADHD do I have?

There are three different types of ADHD, each with separate symptom groupings. During your initial assessment, Dr. Leach goes over the symptoms of each and sees which type applies to you. You may have:

Inattentive type ADHD involves symptoms such as disorganization, trouble paying attention to details, easy distraction, and forgetfulness. 

Hyperactive type ADHD

Hyperactive type ADHD involves trouble sitting still, frequent interruptions, lots of fidgeting or movements, and trouble with taking turns. 

Combined type ADHD

Combined type ADHD is the most common of the three, and to get a diagnosis, you must have symptoms of both other types.
