ADHD Child Symptoms

Children are naturally energetic and excitable, and young children typically have a short attention span.

But sometimes your child's behaviour can appear to be extreme, in terms of their activity level and their ability to focus.

Correctly identifying ADHD child symptoms can allow your child to receive treatment that can improve their concentration and ability to stay focused, as well as control their activity level and their impulse control.

You should never jump to conclusions if you recognize some ADHD child symptoms in your child's behaviour.

Correctly identifying ADHD child behaviours can only be done by a trained and experienced health care professional who performs an full and in depth ADHD assessment on your child which includes a physical examination to rule out any other medical concerns.

If you recognize ADHD symptoms in your child you should discuss your concerns with your doctor.

It is also important to realize that ADHD ADD child symptoms are sometimes caused by separate medical conditions, such as a vitamin deficiency, vision problems, or low blood sugar.
