Do you know anything about attention deficit with hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) ?

October 14, 2010

Children, teens, and even adults with ADHD often have problems with paying attention to boring work, such as most school work, although they may do well with exciting or stimulating tasks. . Many with ADHD are also impulsive, doing or saying things without first considering the consequences. People with Attention Deficit Disorder are typically easily bored.

About half of those with ADHD are also “hyperactive,” meaning that they have high levels of motor activity. They like to move around a lot. They often move around from one activity to another, without ever finishing things that they start.

Children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity (ADHD) at an early age are more at risk of depression and suicide than other teens and parents should take the condition seriously, U.S. researchers say.

    I had heard of this disorder. DO you think is something new or is it just that before we would just consider these children hyperactive and bad students?
