ADHD: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is also known as Hyperkinetic Disorder (the official UK term) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). You don’t need to be so confused with these different names, because they are discribe the same problems in children who are unable to concentrate and are overactive. ADHD is (at least) four times common in boys than girls. Children are usually diagnosed around the age of 7, but symptoms continue into adolescence and adulthood.

Kids with ADHD act without thinking, hyperactive, and have trouble on focusing. They may understand what’s expected of them but have trouble in  following through because they can’t sit still, pay attention, or attend to details. You know, kids who can’t sit still, who never seem to listen, who don’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them, or who blurt out inappropriate comments at inappropriate times. Sometimes these children are labeled as troublemakers, or criticized for being lazy and undisciplined. However, they may have ADD/ADHD.

If you that think your child’s have ADHD, it’s important that you get a diagnosis and start treatment as soon as possible so that his/her symptoms don’t get worse and his/her development isn’t too badly affected.
