Recognizing and Treating ADHD Symptoms

From Concentration Problems To Hyperactivity –
ADHD Can Make Learning Difficult

Identify ADHD Symptoms Early and Learn How to Treat Them Effectively

ADD/ADHD is a serious problem that can stand between a child and scholastic success. As a result, the child suffering from the disorder may also suffer from low self-esteem and other behavioral issues.

If you suspect that your child may be suffering from ADD/ADHD, there are a number of ADD/ADHD symptoms to look for. These ADD/ADHD symptoms can be divided into three broad categories:

  • Inattention/Concentration problems
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsivity

In order to be diagnosed with this disorder, a child must demonstrate at least six ADD/ADHD symptoms from these categories for at least six months. In addition, the ADD/ADHD symptoms must be severe enough that they are considered unusual for the child’s age group.

Concentration problems may present themselves in a child with ADD/ADHD in a variety of ways. Signs of concentration problems include…

  • Failing to pay attention to details
  • Making careless mistakes
  • Difficulty maintaining attention for a reasonable period of time
  • Failing to finish work
  • Being generally forgetful

Hyperactive ADHD symptoms in children include fidgeting with their feet or hands. The child may also repeatedly leave his or her seat, or may run around or climb on objects that are not meant to be climbed upon. A child with ADD/ADHD may also have problems engaging in leisurely activities quietly, or may talk excessively.

Impulsive ADHD symptoms include blurting out answers before questions have been completely asked. The child may also have problems waiting their turn or may interrupt conversations.
