Many children have trouble paying attention and can be unruly from time to time. However, if you notice a pattern of a poor focus, disruptive behavior and restlessness, you might begin to wonder if your child has ADHD.

What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most common mental disorders in children.

ADHD is often diagnosed in the first few years of school. This is when a child’s behavior begins to cause problems in class. Experts believe that ADHD may be caused by a mixture of genetic and environmental factors.

People with ADHD often learn to manage and control their symptoms as they grow older. However, they have a higher risk of developing other mental health problems in adulthood, like anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder.

There two main aspects of ADHD are inattentiveness and hyperactivity/impulsiveness.

Inattentiveness includes symptoms like a short attention span, making careless mistakes, forgetfulness, constantly changing activities, difficulty organizing, and struggling to listen to and follow instructions.

Hyperactivity and impulsiveness results in fidgeting, excess movement, being very talkative, impatience, acting without thinking, interrupting, and having no concept of danger.
