What can seem like ADHD symptoms are sometimes just typical kid behavior. Fidgeting, lack of organization, and inability to listen or follow instructions – they aren’t always symptoms of ADHD.
To diagnose ADHD, some of the things doctors look for include:
• Six symptoms of inattentiveness and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity
• ADHD symptoms that affect kids in at least two places, like home, school, or social situations
• Symptoms for six months or more
If you’re concerned about ADHD, schedule appointment with your child’s doctor so you can get it checked out.
