Three types of problem.
Overactive behaviour, (hyperactivity)
Difficulty in paying attention
Young children have lots of energy and like to be active. Young children also tend to have a short attention span; they soon get tired of an activity and want to move on to something new. But if your child is very active and has behavioural problems most of the time, they may have ADHD.
More children are now being diagnosed with ADHD as more people get to know about it. Boys are more often affected than girls, who more commonly display symptoms of inattention while boys more commonly display symptoms of hyperactivity.
