5 Hidden Signs That Your Child Suffers From Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobiological disorder of genetic causes that occurs in about 3 to 5% of children. ADHD requires parents to look closely at the child’s behavior.
The most obvious symptoms of ADHD are in hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. One must be aware of these signs; they may be hidden in behaviors that are often labeled as “normal of age” or “it is his personality, then improves.” However, ADHD can accompany the child until adolescence, and may even harm the adult’s life, since the person will find it difficult to relate due to forgetfulness, difficulty in completing tasks, organizing, meeting deadlines and controlling impulsiveness. Be aware of these five signs of your child’s behavior:
1. Easily distracted
Of course, all children can be driven by external stimuli while concentrating on an activity. However, if your child is often distracted and slow to resume focus, getting lost in thoughts or outside noises for a long time, needing intervention to resume what he was doing, then this may be a warning sign.
2. Speaks in excess
Only he talks and talks a lot. He does not wait his turn to speak, he answers the questions before they are even finished, and even interferes in matters and conversations.
3. Is impatient
Impatience may be in waiting your turn or even leading you to impulsiveness. Usually the person with ADHD does not have the patience to even organize a thought, which causes him to act on impulse. Do not wait your turn in queues, games, games and the like. Causing fights and discussions with colleagues in collective activities.
4. Do not mind the details
Your mind works at a speed that makes it impossible for you to organize and reflect on what you are visualizing, listening to or reading, for example. Soon you will not be able to pay attention to the details of a route, a story you heard or a video you watched. Because you can not pay attention to details you can make mistakes in simple tasks.
5. It’s forgotten
In day to day tasks memory is not your constant companion. On the contrary, it easily forgets commitments, tasks, school materials. He loses objects, cannot organize his assignments, and apply what he has learned the same day at school in his homework. Due to forgetfulness, disorganization and impatience when attending classes, school performance may be impaired.
It is important to note that a diagnosis of this disorder can only be made by a specialized medical professional, psychiatrist, neurologist or pediatrician after a long interview and analysis of the child’s condition. Some isolated signs may be linked to other pathologies or psychological conditions.
