ADD or ADHD is a brain disorder. Or as we like to call it, a brain difference. This brain difference causes kids and teens to experience difficulty with attention, concentration, self-control and self-esteem.
ADHD has many symptoms. Some symptoms at first may look like normal behaviors for a child, but ADHD makes them much worse and occur more often.
ADHD children may:
- Get distracted easily and forget things often
- Switch too quickly from one activity to the next
- Have trouble with directions
- Daydream too much
- Have trouble finishing tasks like homework or chores
- Lose toys, books, and school supplies often
- Fidget and squirm a lot
- Talk nonstop and interrupt people
- Run around a lot
- Touch and play with everything they see
- Be very impatient
- Blurt out inappropriate comments
- Have trouble controlling their emotions.
If you have a child with ADHD, then you will find many helpful resources on our website. We hope that you will come back often as our resources are updated regularly!
