ADHD fact

Understanding ADHD facts allows you to make the most informed decisions in regards to your child's treatment.

If you are armed with ADHD ADD facts you can avoid common misconceptions regarding ADHD and have a better understanding about the common behaviours typically associated with ADHD and the effective treatments that are available.

Basic ADHD ADD Facts

ADHD ADD is a condition where your child has difficulty staying focused, paying attention and concentrating.

Incidences of these behaviours are considered to be severe, are not considered to be age appropriate, and interfere with your child's ability to function in social settings and at school.

One of the most important ADHD ADD facts that you need to understand is that not all children with ADHD have the same symptoms. Some children with ADHD are impulsive and hyperactive, but not all.

ADHD ADD Facts Regarding Diagnosis

Although there are many ADHD checklists out there, it is very important for you to understand ADHD facts regarding diagnosis.

An ADHD diagnosis must be performed by an experienced healthcare professional that conducts thorough interviews and assessments with your child, and also interviews you and your child's teachers.

An ADHD assessment must always include a full physical examination, as many ADHD type symptoms can actually be caused by other conditions.

It is up to you to make sure that any diagnosis of your child be done by a professional and not by a teacher, school administrator or child care provider.

ADHD ADD Facts Regarding Behaviour

ADHD ADD relates to a wide spectrum of behaviours and is officially called Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.

A child who is diagnosed with ADHD will typically be diagnosed with one of the following three subtypes...

  • ADHD Predominantly Inattentive
  • ADHD Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive
  • ADHD Predominantly Combined

These three subtypes reflect the fact that some children display some behaviours in the ADHD spectrum but not all.

A child may have difficulty paying attention or staying focused on a task but may not be hyperactive.

Another child may not have difficulty concentrating on a task but may have impulsive hyperactive behaviours.

Understanding ADD ADHD facts in regards to your child's specific needs allows you to provide the best possible treatment for him.

A child who shows symptoms of hyperactivity typically has difficulty staying still, staying seated and playing quietly.
