Dr. Jay Schwartz attended Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, where he graduated in the top 25 percent of his class. Dr. Jay Schwartz treats and diagnosis both behavioral and health issues at Collin County Pediatrics.

Because young children often have some difficulty paying attention, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be difficult to diagnose. Regardless, ADHD is more than just normal childhood behavior. A number of specific signs indicate that the disorder may be present in a child.

A child who is showing signs of an inability to focus is a key sign that ADHD may be present. Being fidgety and impulsive is also a major indicator. A child may shout out comments during an inappropriate time, become highly impatient with others, and become prone to having outbursts. Ultimately, a pediatrician is the one who can accurately diagnose and treat a child accordingly.
