ADHD in kids: What you need to know about symptoms and treatment

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that develops when the brain and central nervous system suffer impairments related to growth and development. A child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may struggle throughout the day to maintain their attention. He or she may appear restless and engage in hyperactive or impulsive behaviors.

For kids, ADHD can interfere with their school work, their relationships with other people, and how they view themselves in the world. These symptoms can persist into adulthood, causing work and relationship problems.

Symptoms have been detected in children as young as 3, and they typically start before the age of 12. ADHD is more common among boys than girls, and the symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe. The condition may also manifest differently depending on the individual. Some people experience mainly symptoms of inattention, which is known as the predominantly inattentive subtype of ADHD. The predominantly hyperactive-impulsive subtype describes individuals who mainly experience symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity. Finally, most people with ADHD experience a combination of all symptoms and fall under the combined subtype.
