ADHD – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Does your child struggle to stay on task or finish work? Act without thinking first? Have trouble sitting still? Do these things cause problems for your child at school or home? If the answer is, “yes” your child might have a common childhood medical condition called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
When fidgeting, poor concentration, or impulsiveness disrupt performance in school, at home, or in relationships with other children, the cause might be ADHD. Because there are many causes of such behavior, seeing your child’s doctor and getting the right diagnosis is the first step toward helping your child do better in the classroom, on the playground, and at home. To be a good advocate for your child, you need to learn as much as you can about ADHD.
