Speech Of Mr. Vernon Wells, President Of The Memory Centers of America

Speech of Mr. Vernon Wells, CEO of Memory Centers of America, held on October 3rd, 2000 in Istanbul, Caddebostan:

"Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common chronic health states affecting school-age children. Children with ADHD meet with significant functional problems like academic failure, schoollife adjustment difficulties, and difficulties in relationships with family members and peers, and lack of confidence. Families and teachers require ADHD-evaluation of children from pedagogues and other experts. Children showing signs of hyperactivity and impulsivity are known by their teachers. Sometimes, even very mild symptoms can be detected by many teachers.

The childhood symptoms of ADHD often continue during adolescence and adult life. Early diagnosis, evaluation and planning the treatment direct correctly the educational and psychological development of children with ADHD. However, children with “subtype of attention deficit” may not attract the attention of teachers as there are no or very mild signs of hyperactivity and impulsivity.

These children may fail in school. Symptoms of ADHD may mask some of the behavioral and psychiatric disorders or child’s behavior may be a reaction to a stressful situation at home. As per information from AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), 8% to 12% of school-age children have ADHD and it is the most common neurobehavioral disorder. In Memory center, our criteria relating to the evaluation and follow-up of ADHD in children and adolescents comply with the criteria set by AAP. ¾ of the children with ADHD have depression, anxiety disorders and learning disorders. Therefore, examination and consideration of these types of issues are seen as an important part of the assessment. In Memory Centers, children with ADHD are evaluated by detecting other issues through tests and treatment is planned with holistic approach. In Memory Centers, a variety of educational programs are used as part of the treatment."
