Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder that affects the behavior and its difficult to diagnose before the age of 7. Children are active by nature, sometimes they are tremendously excited and others more calm. But children who suffer from this disorder are usually more active than normal and find it difficult to keep their attention on a single thing, at school they are more clueless and act without taking into account the instructions given by the teachers.

Children with ADHD often have problems in school, show delays in learning, have more accidents, and are more difficult to educate. This is because they are more impulsive, constantly on the go, and seem to live in their own world. It occurs more commonly in boys than girls, although both sexes can develop it. Girls, unlike boys, tend to be more inattentive and it is a bit more difficult to identify ADHD in girls.

The symptoms of ADHD are:

  • Inattention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsivity

But this does not mean that all children should have all the symptoms, therefore we must be vigilant. If you suspect that your child may have this problem, you should consult with your child’s pediatrician to begin treatment.

Among the symptoms, you noticed …

  1. Inattention
  2. distractibility
  3. Difficulty following instructions
  4. Disorganized
  5. tendency to lose objects
  6. nervousness or shyness
  7. Overly chatty
  8. difficulty waiting
  9. Tendency to interrupt when talking

It’s not usually a serious problem that threatens the life of the child, but it makes it more difficult for him to do certain everyday things. And the parents will probably end up more tired at the end of the day…
