Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common condition where children struggle
to remain attentive and are hyperactive or impulsive.

  • Make careless mistakes in schoolwork
  • Not listening (even when spoken to directly)
  • Difficulty organizing tasks, easily distracted, forgetful
  • Avoids tasks that require strict mental focus.
  • Difficulty staying seated, consistent fidgeting, talking too much
  • Unable to do an activity quietly
  • Interrupting conversations

These traits can impact daily life and social communities in school due to potential academic
failure, judgment from their community, and trouble interacting with social groups. Diagnosing
your child allows for strategies to be implemented to make daily tasks easier and allows your
child to find a place in their community.
