Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

We can divide ADHD into three basic forms--Inattentive, Hyperactive/Impulsive and what we call the Combined Presentation, some of the Inattentive and some of the Hyperactive/Impulsive symptoms.

 

Inattentive includes:

 

Often fails to give close attention to details.

Often has difficulty sustaining attention.

Often doesn't seem to listen.

Often doesn't follow through on chores, tasks.

Often has difficulty organizing.

Often avoids tasks like homework.

Often loses things.

Often distracted.

Often forgerful in daily activities.

Hyperactive/Impulsive includes:

 

Often fidgets with hands or feet.

Has difficulty remaining seated.

Often runs or climbs inappropriately.

Often can't play quietly.

Often "on the go" like being "driven by a motor."

Often talks excessively.

Often blurts our answers.

Often has difficulty waiting his/her turn in line.

Often interrupts or intrudes on others.

But the question is what can you do about it? Sometimes ADHD looks like anxiety or PTSD or a number of

other conditions. That's why a thorough evaluation is important. If you feel like this would be helpful to you
