ABOUT HDHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood. It is estimated to affect 3 to 5 percent of school-age children and affects two to three times as many boys as girls.  ADHD or ADD is not merely a problem with paying attention. ADHD makes it difficult to manage the multiple tasks of daily life, especially complex tasks that require organization, planning, and sustained focus.

 

ADHD is challenging for both you and your child, however, once you understand the problem and how its impact, you can learn to compensate for areas of weakness and take advantage of the many strengths and talents.

  • Makes careless mistakes and doesn’t pay attention to details
  • Difficulty sustaining attention
  • Appears not to listen when spoken to
  • Disorganization
  • Frequently loses or misplaces homework, books, or other items

  • Often leaves his or her seat in situations where sitting quietly is expected
  • Moves around constantly, often runs or climbs excessively
  • Talks excessively
  • Has difficulty playing quietly or relaxing
  • Is always on the go, as if driven by a motor

Impulsivity

 

  • Acts without thinking
