What does a child with ADHD syndrome look like?
He fidgets, can’t sit still, doesn’t wait his turn, runs excessively, always seems to be “on the go”, are just some of the characteristics of a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). According to specialists, this neurobiological disorder has become one of the most common behavioural disorders found in children.
If you are a parent you should know that this disorder is characterised by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. These symptoms can occur in any social context, either at kindergarten or school, or at home. Doctors have noticed that boys are more frequently diagnosed with ADHD than girls. Symptoms can vary according to gender, so boys are more likely to show signs of impulsivity and hyperactivity, while girls are more likely to be inattentive.
Identified early, it can be successfully treated!
For this reason, a parent must recognize the symptoms. If you notice that your child is hyperactive and shows symptoms such as: fidgeting, can’t sit still, talks a lot without thinking ahead, interrupts others, has difficulty maintaining attention, doesn’t listen, doesn’t follow things through, doesn’t get organised, misses important things, it is recommended to consult a specialist.
Unidentified early and untreated, ADHD can have serious long-term consequences, which can lead to school failure, depression, problems with social interaction, difficulties in finding and keeping a job.
