Signs of ADHD

Posted: Updated:

There could be early signs of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Doctors say kids with ADHD are also much more impulsive than typical children. Those signs are easier to catch onto when a child starts school,  because they're required to direct their attention to something they may not be entirely interested in doing.

Parents who are worried are urged to spend a day at school with their child to see if they notice any big differences. If there are noticeable behavior differences, consult a doctor.

Medications are typically very effective in treating the disorder. But kids are also taught coping skills to use in the classroom.
