Attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADHD) worries many parents, especially at back-to-school time when their children’s behavior and academic performance are closely scrutinized. 

ADHD can take various forms and causes symptoms or combinations of symptoms that vary from one child to another. There are three subtypes of ADHD, predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, and combined, when both are present at once. All children, especially young children, can sometimes be agitated, impulsive, or have trouble concentrating when they are nervous or excited. This is quite normal. However, if they display these behaviors over a long period, and especially if their behavior interferes with daily activities at home or at school, they may in fact suffer from ADHD. This disorder can not only have a negative impact on the child’s ability to function and learn, causing the child to fall behind at school, but it can also affect other areas of the child’s life, such as family and social relations. A number of testing and treatment options are available as well as tips and tools to help children and their parents get a better understanding of the disorder.
