  • If your children are having trouble with paying attention, sitting still or controlling their impulses, this shouldn’t be taken lightly, a Turkish expert says.
  • Stating that these symptoms can point to Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Dr. Mehmet Palacı of Mem Psikologi & Pedagoji warned that the condition can have negative effects on cognitive function and children’s development.
  • Newer treatment methods have been focusing on determining families’ and their children’s personalities and characters, and monitoring changes to help discern if any intervention is necessary.
