Types of ADHD Directory
ADHD symptoms are divided into two categories: inattention symptoms, and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms. The types of ADHD are divided along the same lines. A third type is called "combined," where both the inattention symptoms and the hyperactivity and impulsiveness are present. Treatments and therapies often vary based on the type of ADHD diagnosed.
