Common Symptoms Of Children With ADD Or ADHD

By Anthony Stewart

Sometimes children with ADD or ADHD have problems in the school system and it isn’t their fault. Many parents, teachers and school officials don’t understand the illness and the children are wrongly categorized as troublesome without knowing the real reasons behind their behavior.

Symptoms like frequent talking and fidgeting may just seem like an annoyance to someone who doesn’t know they are the byproduct of an underlying problem. The children who display this behavior are lumped in with those who need regular correction. It’s important to know that your child isn’t bad or doing these things to be a nuisance.

They have a valid illness that has been documented and often requires treatment to relieve the symptoms. Children with ADD or ADHD can do well in school and lead a successful life if they get the attention they need. Parents of children with ADD or ADHD should realize that their child’s mind works differently than other children.

Commonly, children with ADD or ADHD become restless or hyperactive if they become bored. This can happen if the school material is not being taught in a way that a child with ADD or ADHD understands. Often children that have ADD or ADHD process information better when it’s presented visually. They can remember information that they see quicker and longer than what they hear or read.

Some children with ADD or ADHD experience racing thoughts when they don’t have enough to keep them occupied. The more bored and idle they are the more their thoughts race. The symptom perpetuates itself like anxiety can.

If children with ADD or ADHD don’t find a subject to focus their attention or satisfy their needs their minds take off. Their thoughts begin to race and it becomes hard for them to control their impulses.

It may be tempting to think that your child is dumb or a troublemaker if he or she is disruptive in school. Before you assume anything about your child, have them evaluated by a professional. They may have ADD or ADHD and if so, can receive the attention they need to succeed.
