Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a treatable condition that affects about 5 percent of all children in the United States. The Symptoms of ADHD usually appear by age 7 and are found in boys more often than girls. Associated with both the central nervous system and environmental factors, ADHD is characterized by one or more of the following core symptoms:
Some children may have ADHD without hyperactivity. In such cases, the condition is more difficult to detect because these children do not "act up" in class or at home. They may seem lethargic and fail to complete work, or they may show signs of confusion, forgetfulness, and disorganization.
Children with ADHD do not intentionally choose to be the way they are. They are not lazy, unmotivated or "willful." Children with ADHD are biologically different. Often, it is hard for them to do what is expected of them; they'd rather do what is interesting to them.
