Thoughtful Health is a Brisbane clinic providing psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapy and speech therapy services for children, adolescents and adults with ADHD.
ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, can affect both children and adults, and cause problems with attention, organisation and concentration.
Children with ADHD are usually treated with a combination of therapy, provided by a psychologist or occupational therapist, and sometimes also with medication. Our team of child psychiatrists, psychologist and occupational therapists can assist in the diagnosis and management of ADHD.
