Children are naturally energetic and excitable. A young child who often gets distracted can be perfectly typical and healthy, in terms of his growth and development.

But some childhood behaviours can manifest into extreme behaviours. Behaviours that have a negative affect on your child's day to day life might need to be looked at more carefully.

Recognizing ADHD ADD behaviours and identifying them in your child can allow your child to receive life-improving treatments that can have a positive affect not only on your child's future but also on the dynamics of your entire family.

If you recognize some typical ADHD ADD behaviours in your own child you should not jump to any conclusions.

ADHD ADD behaviours can also be caused by a number of other factors. Some medical conditions that cause behaviours which can be mislabeled as ADHD ADD behaviours include... vision and hearing problems, low blood sugar, thyroid disorder and lead exposure.

Lack of sleep and poor nutrition, as well as learning disabilities also cause behaviours very similar to ADHD ADD behaviours.

There are also other disorders that have symptoms that mimic ADHD ADD behaviours, such as autism, depression, anxiety disorder and bipolar disorder.

Diagnosing ADHD ADD behaviour should only be done by a professional health care provider... not a teacher or childcare provider... and should only be done after a thorough ADHD assessment.

If you recognize typical ADHD ADD behaviours in your child, then you should seek further help with an experienced professional healthcare provider.
