ADHD - Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity
The attachment below is a list of behaviors that can be problematic to your child causing him or her to significantly underachieve in the classroom and experience low self-esteem. Not all behaviors will apply to your child. Behaviors will vary in degree with each child. Moreover, some of these behaviors are normal in childhood to a certain degree at various developmental stages. For example, it is normal for a young child to have difficulty waiting for a turn or to have a short attention span. However, if a child exhibits a significantly high number of these behaviors when they are developmentally inappropriate, it can be problematic. These children may need assistance and intervention.
