If I have a short attention span is it ADHD?

A short attention span could indicate ADHD, but this condition can cause many other disruptive and frustrating issues, such as:

  • Poor concentration
  • Disorganization
  • Time management issues
  • Losing things frequently
  • Difficulty following through on tasks
  • Being easily frustrated
  • Avoiding tasks that require concentration
  • Acting before thinking 
  • Interrupting conversations
  • Difficulty waiting 
  • Fidgeting
  • Being very talkative
  • Having excessive energy 

ADHD may manifest as inattentive type (mainly symptoms involving attention and focus) or hyperactive/impulsive type (mainly symptoms involving impulsive or high-energy behaviors). Many people have combined presentation ADHD, with symptoms of both types. 

The best way to find out whether your symptoms are ADHD is by undergoing a comprehensive evaluation at Healthyminds Wellness LLC. 

What happens in an ADHD evaluation?  

There isn’t a single test to diagnose ADHD. At Healthyminds Wellness LLC, Dr. Oyeneyin performs a comprehensive behavioral and psychiatric evaluation to detect ADHD as well as other conditions that may mimic it.

ADHD evaluations include a detailed medical history review, a discussion about symptoms you remember having earlier in your life, and a detailed discussion of your current symptoms. Dr. Oyeneyin may also want to speak to a loved one who has observed any symptoms. 

Dr. Oyeneyin also uses a variety of different diagnostic tools, such as symptom checklists, behavior rating scales, and intelligence tests to determine whether you or your teen has ADHD and diagnose or rule out other conditions. 

What is the most effective ADHD treatment?

Multifaceted treatment with both medication and psychotherapy is the optimal approach for ADHD. Dr. Oyeneyin can provide both types of care in the office and through convenient telepsychiatry visits.


Medication can help dissipate troublesome ADHD symptoms and make it easier to focus and resist unhealthy impulses. ADHD medications are typically taken once a day, and it’s important to take the medication exactly as prescribed to get good long-term results.


Psychotherapy can help you learn more about ADHD and how to manage the symptoms. Therapy can also help develop behavior-management techniques to improve concentration, reduce distractions, and respond to stressors.

Dr. Oyeneyin takes the time to educate you about all the treatment options and helps you decide which path of healing and growth is right for you and your family. Book your appointment online or call Healthyminds Wellness LLC today.
