ADHD is a common issue, but that does not mean that every child labeled as a “troublemaker” has it. The symptoms of ADHD are actually much more diverse, and they can involve anything from speech to movement.
Here are a few symptoms to look for:
– Lack of following directions
– Underperformance at school
– Not following rules in play
– Easily distracted
– Frequently loses items
– Constant fidgeting and squirming
– Excessive talking
– Quick temper
– Not attentive to personal space
In most cases, children by the age of 4 or 5 exhibit the symptoms clearly. Of course, many symptoms will not develop until much later.
Always check with your doctor regarding questions on your health for you or you baby.
